Spanish Future Perfect Subjunctive
Like the future subjunctive, the future perfect subjunctive (el futuro compuesto del subjuntivo ) is rarely used in modern Spanish. However, as you may see in literature and legal documents, it is definitely a useful tense to be able to recognize. It is used to indicate actions that will have happened in the future at a certain point. Nowadays, the future perfect subjunctive is often replaced by the past perfect subjunctive or the present perfect subjunctive.
