  • Providing a certificate or declaration of your loved one’s death, including Apostille.
  • Serving legal notice to all heirs or beneficiaries under the will or intestacy.
  • Preparing a foreign legal opinion for family court (if your loved one does not live in Israel).
  • Closing any procedure with Israeli banks, including any IRS requirements for the US.
  • residents.
  • Wired the funds to the clients in NY and reviewed the accounting with the client.

We also have vast experience in helping clients contest the validity of wills or oppose applications for probate or succession orders efficiently and in a time-sensitive manner. We also advise with the registration of inherited property and with handling all tax-related matters, if any. We also work with our clients to locate any inherited property in Israel.
