Things To Consider in Your International Estate Plan

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. Whether you are a legal permanent resident, a non-resident alien, or have foreign investments you have a lot to consider when creating an estate plan.

There are many things to consider when creating your estate plan:

  • 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.

Do You Own Property Outside 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 in New York City who understands estate and immigration law, like Attorney Robert J. Maher. Knowing the laws and taxes your estate will be subjected to in the event you become incapacitated or pass away can help you better prepare for the future and protect your assets for your family.
