Hello,
Thank you for contacting JustAnswer.co.uk.
It was brought to our attention that you asked a legal question about Goa, where we do not have active professionals. As much as we would like to assist you, we have to be honest and say that the best we can do is maybe to provide a legal Internet researcher who might be able to find your answer. We realize that option is not ideal, and we always want to provide our customers with the best possible answer.
At this time, we'd like to give you the option of leaving your question open. Keep in mind that you're never obliged to accept an answer that you're not satisfied with, and you can try it out before you accept. Or, we can close your question page for you, if you prefer.
Please let me know how you’d like to proceed,

Hello

Went thru the text of your Email, I think it is a good idea to refer it to the

legal internet researcher and the take it from there. Great if you could proceed accordingly.

However would appreciate an early response.

Hello there,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Please note, I am just a moderator for this category, I can only try and find experts to help, I can't answer the question itself.

Thank you!

Hello, my name is Greg.

Sorry about the delay on this issue.

Yes, as long as it was registered than it falls under the communion of assets.

"The Portuguese civil code recognize that every Goan marries under a system called Communion of Assets, whereby from the time of the marriage the spouse acquires half undivided rights in the assets of the other. The Muslim law as per the Sharia is not valid in Goa"
