QTips: How To File A Recurso Amparo

The writ of amparo (also called recurso de amparo) is a remedy for the protection of constitutional rights in Costa Rica and other countries. In some legal systems, predominantly those of the Spanish-speaking world,the amparo remedy or action is an effective and inexpensive instrument for the protection of individual rights.

In many countries, an amparo action is intended to protect all rights other than physical liberty, which may be protected instead by habeas corpus remedies. Thus, in the same way that habeas corpus guarantees physical freedom, amparo protects other basic rights. It may therefore be invoked by any person who believes that any of his rights, implicitly or explicitly protected by the constitution (or by applicable international treaties), is being violated.

Anyone can file an amparo and for any reason. It can even be scrawled on a napkin. It is then up to the Court to decide to accept the filing and rule on it.
