How Can An Experienced Attorney Help Me Protect My Assets?
Asset protection, like estate planning, depends greatly upon your current circumstances. Some of the more common questions that must be first considered when protecting your assets include:
- Are there sizeable real estate investments that are in your family’s name?
- What, if any, legal proceedings are you current involved in?
- Do you own your own business?
- How much equity do you own?
- What are your family dynamics?
- What is your current health?
Keep in mind these are just a small sample of the types of questions that will need to be answered. Asset protection is very much an “assessment” of your present fiscal circumstances, determining the type of risk potential your assets may face and building an effective strategy around these factors. Depending on the specifics of your estate, there are a wide variety of options that your attorney may suggest. Only a qualified asset protection attorney can give you a clear picture of what options may be best in your particular situation.
