Frequently Asked Questions
Can an immigration attorney help me prepare for the naturalization exam?

An attorney cannot help applicants prepare or study for the naturalization exam. However, having legal representation is essential because an attorney can challenge test results that are believed to be in error and help resolve discrepancies with the application. Before applying for naturalization, individuals should consult an experienced attorney who can evaluate their case and determine if any issues could be problematic. In the long run, having legal representation can save clients time and money, and ensure the naturalization process goes smoothly.

Why is it essential to have a business lawyer help me determine which structure will be suitable for my company?

Starting a new business can be an exciting prospect for any budding entrepreneur or those with many years of experience. However, regardless of your experience level, hiring a business lawyer to help you determine what structure fits your needs is essential. Because several options are available, you need a lawyer with extensive experience handling business law issues to protect your interests. A business lawyer has the skills and training to evaluate your startup and determine what infrastructure will provide you with the best protection.

Will my estate plan be legally dissolved if I go through a divorce?

While it is not possible to change your estate plan while in the midst of a divorce, you must create a new plan once the divorce is finalized. Under California law, an estate plan legally removes your former spouse from being able to act as the executor of the estate, receive assets, and act as Power of Attorney. Additionally, all living trusts are dissolved. However, even though legally, your former spouse may be removed, your other beneficiaries may be uncertain of what will happen if you pass away. Therefore, contact an estate planning lawyer to create a new plan to protect your assets.

Will my beneficiaries have to pay taxes on a foreign inheritance?

If you receive an inheritance from a non-US resident or a foreign inheritance with a value exceeding $100,000, it must be reported to the IRS. This amount includes the total of all gifts or inheritance that the beneficiary may receive. To report the gift or foreign inheritance, the recipient must file IRS Form 3520: Annual Return to Report Transactions with Foreign Trusts and Receipt of Certain Foreign Gifts at the same time they file their individual income tax return. Understanding foreign gift tax rules can be confusing, so anyone with questions should speak with an international estate planning lawyer who can provide more information.

Can immigration lawyers help clients avoid removal proceedings by applying for an adjustment of status?

One of the most challenging issues in immigration is assisting clients involved in removal proceedings. However, an immigration lawyer may be able to apply for an adjustment of status if they meet specific qualifications, such as having a qualifying relative who is a citizen spouse, parent, or child who is at least 21 years old. A skilled attorney often makes a difference in whether an individual is allowed to remain in the country or is removed. However, it is important to remember that every situation is different; therefore, anyone facing removal must consult with an immigration attorney who can determine their legal options.
