If you have assets in both Israel and in the United States, questions of jurisdiction can tie up your assets for even longer periods of time. Questions regarding the domicile of the heirs and the differences in the laws between the two countries can tie up your estate for years.
To create a binding will or trust that will be accepted in both the United States and in Israel you need a lawyer who is licensed to practice in both countries and who has experience in matters of international law regarding wills, trusts and estate planning.

Do It Yourself
Easy access to do-it-yourself forms that you can download from the Internet may make it seem attractive to take care of creating the legal forms yourself but when it comes to financial matters, you would be putting yourself and your heirs at risk by trying to go that route.
One-size-fits-all legal documents are rarely sufficient. Every situation is unique, especially if it involves international law where citizens of two countries are involved. Online legal documents may be inaccurate or out of date and if they are used, your heirs will have little recourse if there’s a problem. These forms can actually result you or your heirs becoming embroiled in a costly legal mess that may leave them with nothing like what you had planned.
