We had a pleasure of working with Irena Rosenberg who assisted in getting our two U.S. born children registered in Israel and supported visa process for my wife in 2021. During the pandemic, my wife and I decided to move to Israel where I am originally from after living in the U.S. for over 20 years, but we had no idea how to go about securing visas before and after arriving in Israel. Irena is knowledgeable, reliable and competent lawyer who always had answers to all our questions which made us feel confident that everything would be fine with her assistance. We are now happily living in Israel and are so grateful to have Irena who is a genuinely nice person as our lawyer.

When Do I Need a Foreign Legal Opinion in Israel?

Foreign legal opinions may be required when dealing with applications for a succession order or a will probate order.  For example, if the testator registered the will in Israel but the testator’s residence was outside of Israel when the testator passed away, then a foreign legal opinion is necessary to proceed with inheritance issues relating to the testator’s will in Israel.  An expert jurist from the testator’s residence must prepare a foreign legal opinion which must be submitted among other required documents in a variety of cases. foreign legal opinion in Israel
