thank you for contacting me so soon. The service is really very good.
This house is located in Rome (Italy) and it title to my name for 50%. The other half is titled to my first husband. Very soon I will get married in New York City and I would like this property to go entirely to my only daughter being something I build before this second marriage. I wrote a will expressing this wish in case something should happen to me. According to Italian law, if my new husband does not renounce, my daughter will receive only 3 thirds of the property, otherwise, if he does,my will is taken into consideration. What about in New York State?

really thanks a lot for the information on double taxing... I hadn't thought of it at all since it will take quite a long time till the US will grant me a resident visa to join my husband there and be able to work in the country. Only then (my husband will try for citizenship but, at the moment, he is only an old resident in NY and therefore it will take 2 years and a half at least to be able to join him) so... as I was saying, only then I will leave Italy and my job here. I found out that there is a bilateral agreement between Italy and US for pension contributions: year worked in Italy and years worked in US can be simply totalized. But I didn't know about declaration of taxes. I presumed that if I'm working in the USA I will be paying income taxes there and I will be taxed by the US for my period working there. But it seems it's not like that.
Thank you very much for your hint...
