Estate Planning for Immigrants & Foreign Investors
Handled by Our Immigrant Estate Planning Lawyer in New York City
If you immigrated to the U.S., or if you have foreign investments, your estate planning needs are more complex than the average person's. Due to the complicated nature of this type of estate planning, working with an experienced, knowledgeable attorney is critical. For more than a decade, the Law Office of Robert J. Maher, PC, has been helping clients with all types of estate planning needs. We also have extensive experience handling more complicated, international estate planning issues. No case is too big or too small. We strive to help you achieve your goals.
Dealing with Unique Estate Planning Situations
Every family is different, and consequently, your estate planning needs will be unique. This is especially true for families in which one or both spouses have immigrated to the U.S., or in situations in which you have foreign investments to consider. Whether you are a legal permanent resident or a non-resident alien, you have a lot to consider when creating an estate plan.
Foreign investors and immigrants deal with unique estate planning matters, including:
- Protections for minor children while living abroad
- Marital exemption issues
- The accessibility of assets held in another country
- Foreign inheritance laws and inheritance taxes
- Estate taxation for U.S. residents who own property in foreign countries
- Estate taxation issues for non-resident aliens who die with U.S. property holdings
- Gift taxes associated with transferring ownership to a third party
- The repatriation of remains to the U.S.
If you own property outside of the U.S., are a U.S. citizen living abroad, or if you are a recent immigrant to the U.S. who is not a U.S. citizen, it is worthwhile speaking with an attorney familiar with both estate planning law and immigration law, like ours at the Law Office of Robert J. Maher, PC. Understanding the laws and taxes your estate will be subjected to in the event of your incapacitation or death can help you better prepare for the future and protect your assets for your family.
