Foreign Assets and Domestic Debt
U.S. citizens with foreign assets, international property and offshore accounts may have particularly complex concerns if they are considering bankruptcy. If you have questions regarding bankruptcy and foreign assets, the attorneys of Weintraub & Selth have answers to even the most complex questions:
- If I file bankruptcy, do I need to disclose property, assets and investments in a foreign country?
- Does an American court have jurisdiction in regard to my international property, assets and investments?
- Is my international property exempt under the bankruptcy code?
- If international property was inherited, do I have to report it in bankruptcy?
- If I qualify for Chapter 7, do I have to liquidate my international property?
The above are only a small sample of the many complex questions you may have for experienced bankruptcy attorneys. At Weintraub & Selth, we have been representing clients with such complex questions for more than two decades. Our three attorneys have nearly seventy years of combined experience in this area of the law. For all of your questions about international property and the bankruptcy process, you can count on Weintraub & Selth for thorough answers and practical advice.
