International Law of Succession
Each country has its own rules of inheritance. Therefore, in case of a foreign estate, the first question we need to answer is what inheritance law applies. Bear in mind that a foreign estate goes beyond the existence of certain assets located in foreign countries, such as the inheritance of a residence located abroad. In fact, a foreign connection exists already in bi-national marriages, as the foreign spouse dies and assets are inherited locally.
International succession cases often involve a number of tax and legal peculiarities that must be observed. It is therefore advisable to seek early contact with a knowledgeable lawyer.
