International Estate Planning
An estate refers to all the real and personal property that a person owns. This includes any land, buildings, money, and other possessions. Estate planning helps individuals manage their assets and provide for their families after they are gone. It also involves preparing documents such as wills, trusts, powers of attorney, advance healthcare directives, and more.
These documents ensure that an individual’s wishes are honored regarding how their financial affairs will be handled upon death or incapacity. Estate planning can also help minimize taxation on estates and protect against potential lawsuits. By creating an estate plan with the help of a financial advisor or lawyer, individuals can ensure that their assets are distributed according to their wishes after they pass away.
International estate planning helps in preparing the transfer of assets or wealth across international boundaries, to minimize taxes and preserve one’s legacy. It is a complex process that requires careful consideration of a variety of factors including tax laws, trust deed legalities, asset ownership rules, and foreign currency restrictions.
An important aspect of international estate planning is to ensure that your assets are held in an enforceable trust. A trust allows you to control who will be able to access your money and how it can be used after you pass away. Our experienced estate planning attorneys can guide you on setting up trusts that meet any applicable local laws and regulations while also protecting your assets from being taxed at too high a rate or seized by foreign governments.
A will is a legal document that allows a person to decide how their assets will be distributed upon their death. In many countries, wills are used to ensure that the deceased’s wishes for their estate and other matters such as guardianship of minor children are carried out. Wills typically name one or more executors who are responsible for seeing that the terms of the will are carried out. The executor must make sure all debts and taxes from the estate have been paid, and then distribute any remaining assets according to the instructions in the will.

To submit a valid will certain formal procedures must be followed. Each party involved in writing the will needs to understand their responsibilities under the law and the importance of having accurate information recorded in the document.

Revocable Living Trusts
A Revocable Living Trust is a powerful estate planning tool that allows you to transfer your assets into a trust, which can be managed and distributed according to your wishes after your death. The main advantage of using a Revocable Living Trust is that it avoids probate court, allowing the distribution of your assets to proceed more quickly and with more privacy than in the case of a will. It also allows you to appoint someone else as a trustee so that they can manage your affairs if you become incapacitated or unable to do so yourself.
With a Revocable Living Trust, you retain control over all of the assets held within it during your lifetime. You can make changes to the terms at any time, as well as to add and remove assets. You can also name yourself as the trustee so that you have direct control over all of the assets held within the trust. Once you pass away, however, your successor trustee will take over management of the trust according to your wishes as outlined in the document.
We approach every case with care and attention. From helping to create wills and trusts to dealing with probate court proceedings, our experts will work hard to ensure your wishes are respected and carried out as planned.
