I own real estate outside the US and I intend on selling it in the next couple of years. While I'm not a US citizen, I did marry one and I am in the process of getting a Green Card. I'm currently on an H1B.
This sale will probably come in at over $1MM and I want to hire a lawyer in the Bay Area who can help me bring this sort of money into the US and help me deal with any tax repercussions and interface with the lawyers/agents/party in the country of sale.
I've obviously never dealt with this before and I'm looking for pointers and suggestions as to which kind of lawyer to hire. Do specific kinds of lawyers deal with this scenario? If not, what would be the closest thing?
