Hi all, My beloved mother is unfortunately on her death bed. I am going over to the US to care for her, but the end is imminent. My question is, how do I handle the windfall? ( i know it's a big question!). THe amount is mostly investments and a paid off house with a bit of cash as well. DO i transfer all money over to my account here? Should i leave the investments for a while with my mother's accountant in the US (she has indicated she would like me too do just that for at least a year or two)? The amount is above the CAT threshold as far as I can tell. I currently do not have an Irish passport, but am qualified for one as spouse of an Irish citizen. Just never took the time to get it. My wife and I are both gainfully employed and don't really need to dip into the cash just yet. I honestly don't even know where to begin. I fully intend to live my life here in Ireland and I can't foresee a move back to the US. How would you suggest I go about handling this? Pay off my mortgage (just into year 3 of a 25 year)? I can pay off my mortgage and I would still have money left over. Thanks for any help. I have referred to this site for years but this is the first time i need some advice personally.
