To discuss your needs with an attorney who understands the unique issues immigrants and foreign investors face when planning an estate, contact us at (646) 681-1977.

Things To Consider in Your 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., 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 who understands estate and immigration law, like Attorney Robert J. Maher. 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.
