The world in which we live is becoming increasingly global. Family members live and work in different countries and assets are located overseas. Estate plans must reflect the global nature of individuals' lives when necessary. Proper international estate planning requires the assistance of an attorney who understands how international laws and estate planning intersect.
At Tour-Sarkissian Law Offices, LLP, we are keenly aware of the international aspect of many individuals' lives. Our team of estate planning lawyers has experience helping French citizens and other bi-nationals living in California plan their global estates. With our knowledge, we can also help individuals who either own or are planning to buy real estate in France, determine how best to pass along their acquired properties at death.
Estate Planning Solutions With An International Focus
Some of the international estate planning solutions we offer include:
- International transfer of assets
- Drafting of qualified domestic trusts (QDTs)
- Prenuptial agreements involving foreign nationals
- Purchase of real estate in France and other French-speaking countries
- International business succession planning
Trusts are a common way in the United States to plan an estate. Paul Tour-Sarkissian co-wrote a book regarding the legal and tax consequences of U.S. trusts in France, and he is one of the few lawyers who understands how trusts can work in the French legal system.
