Successfully Navigating an Estate with Foreign Assets

For many, borders between home and foreign jurisdictions increasingly matter less and are easily overlooked when acquiring new assets, like a second home in another country and bank accounts and other financial assets. Updating your estate planning to reflect the new status quo of foreign asset ownership, however, doesn't always keep pace and is often an afterthought. Multijurisdictional wills and separate situs wills--important yet underused planning tools for an effective and comprehensive estate plan--help streamline and add greater certainty to administering an estate with foreign assets.
