About the Sponsor
Global Village Law is a division of THE VILLAGE LAW FIRM™ in New York City, which provides comprehensive tax and estate planning for cross-border families.
Why It’s Important for your Family.
Every parent living in the United States should have a plan in place to take care of their family in the event of a death or a debilitating illness. This is particularly true if your close family members live outside of this country.
Did you know that if something happens to you and your partner and you don’t have the right legal documents in place...
- Your child could end up a ward of the state and be placed in the foster care system if close family members live outside the U.S.
- A U.S. court will supervise your children’s inheritance until they turn 18, and the money may not be available for their care.
- Your relatives will be stuck navigating the U.S. legal system and paying U.S. lawyer and court fees without having any access to your assets to cover the costs.
- A chunk of your kids’ inheritance can end up going to taxes.
Even if one parent survives, half of a deceased spouse’s assets will be frozen by the court until your child turns 18.
If this sounds like it would be a nightmare for your loved ones, it would be.
That’s why our firm is committed to helping families just like yours legally and financially protect their families.
