Legal Advantages

The legal and judicial system in Guam is the same as in any other U.S. state or territory. All proceedings are in English, and based on the American common law legal system and US standards of integrity.  The terms used in court documents and settlement agreements  would be recognizable by any other U.S. court. Guam lawyers and judges are well trained and educated in U.S. law schools. The www.justice.gov.gu. is a comprehensive site that provides links to Guam courts, Guam Bar, Office of the Guam Attorney General, and other legal websites

GUAM’S COURT SYSTEM

The Guam Court System was established under the Organic Act of Guam (a U. S. Congress law) which maintains ultimate supervision over Guam courts. Our courts consist of the Guam Superior Court, Guam Supreme Court and the US District Court which function under the jurisdiction of the United States court system thus maintain a favorable legal environment. Records at the Guam Superior court are well maintained and accessible.
