    Frequently Asked Questions

    1. What is the difference between liquid and non-liquid assets?

    Liquid assets are the ones that can be converted into cash with little to no change in market value. Some examples are:

    • Cash in bank accounts
    • Mutual funds
    • Annuities 
    • Life insurance cash value

    On the other hand, it’s difficult to convert non-liquid assets into cash. Also, there is a significant loss in their market value over time. 

    Some examples are:

    • Real estate
    • Vehicles
    • Art collection 
    • Collectibles
    2. How does asset protection benefit business owners?

    Asset protection can benefit business owners in a number of ways like:

    • Reduce the risks of lawsuits
    • Protect assets excluded by insurance coverage
    • Minimize business losses
    • Prevent conflicts among business partners
    • Create an independent business entity
    3. I have insurance coverage, do I still need asset protection?

    Yes. Insurance policies do offer some kind of protection to your assets against legal liabilities. However, it doesn’t cover all claims and cannot protect your assets from all legal risks. So, it’s advisable to consult an experienced asset protection attorney in NJ to help you safeguard your assets in the best way possible.

    4. Does my living trust protect my assets from lawsuits?

    No, a living trust does not provide any asset protection against lawsuits. This is because living trusts are revocable, meaning you can change or revoke them anytime. So, a creditor can easily gain access to your assets.

    5. How do I protect my assets from creditors?

    Some tips to protect your assets from creditors are:

    • Create an irrevocable trust
    • Use business entities
    • Have insurance coverage
    • Transfer assets to your spouse’s name
    • Keep business and personal assets separately

    Above all, hire the best asset protection lawyer in NJ to help you protect your assets from creditors efficiently. Book a free consultation.
