Asset Protection Basics

Asset protection is a process of protecting estate assets against attack by creditors. A well-designed asset protection plan builds a protective fort around the client’s estate and guards family wealth from external creditor attack. Asset protection works best if the asset protection plan contains multiple layers of protection so that even if a creditor can defeat one protective device, there are other impediments to the creditor’s attack which surround the family’s nest egg. Asset protection is, therefore, a fundamental building block of estate planning.

Anyone who is concerned about their contractual liabilities or being named as a defendant in a civil dispute needs an asset protection plan. Reading information on this website will help you avoid costly asset protection mistakes.
