My wife and I are planning to buy a home in her home country Trinidad. It is looking difficult (probably not impossible) for me to be on the mortgage because the bank said they would have a hard time verifying my income since I'm not a citizen of the country In that case, would it be possible to sign a legal document here in the US saying that we both own this property? Also, would that legal document hold up in court?
You need to speak to an attorney in Trinidad to see what works there. If its a property owned by only one of you, the it would still be considered marital property.
You need to speak to an attorney in Trinidad since the property is located there.
Speak to a Trinidadian attorney. The attorneys here are NY attorneys and I wager that most of us have no idea about the laws in Trinidad.
