Safeguard Your Business And Personal Property
When you work hard to accrue wealth, you want to do everything in your power to protect your interests from a wide variety of threats. To best protect your assets, you will need to carefully plan ahead with an experienced estate planning attorney.
Why You Need To Plan For Asset Protection
Nearly everyone has had an insurance policy in their lifetime. Insurance policies are the best way to help protect assets like your house, car and business; but, if your insurance policy doesn’t have enough coverage, you could be left at extreme risk. There are many circumstances for which even the best professionals and business owners fail to plan for, which could jeopardize the wealth they’ve worked hard to obtain. Only an experienced asset protection attorney will be able to ensure your wealth is protected from every conceivable threat.
Keeping Assets Out Of Creditors’ Reach
Assets need to be protected from any potential creditors. If you want assets like property or life insurance payouts to remain out of the reach of creditors or potential creditors, you need to take steps to ensure these assets seamlessly transition directly to your loved ones or next of kin.
A few items that can be placed under asset protection include:
- Home equity
- Retirement accounts
- Taxable accounts
While some other types of assets may not be legally protected from creditors, with the help of a lawyer, you can transfer these assets to protect them from future claims by creditors.
Asset Protection For Businesses
If you own your business, there are many legal implications regarding the type of entity you established. Certain types of entities can actually put the business owner’s personal assets at risk in the event of a lawsuit or other proceedings. Keeping business and personal assets separate can protect you from losing one type of asset because of the other.
