My German husband (has permanent resident visa/green card) and I live in the United States now and have had a legal family trust (including living will) drawn up in English. Our question is if our trust/will document written in English will be accepted in Germany, or is it a requirement that it be translated into German to be accepted for assets that we might have there? We have inquired into translation, but it appears that it would be exorbitantly costly and is an expense that we prefer to avoid unless it is absolutely necessary. Thank you for your attention to this request.
