    3 Principles of Asset Protection

    More Relinquishing Means Better Protection

    The amount of control you are willing to relinquish on your assets would determine their accessibility to your creditors. If a lawsuit arises, the only thing that would protect your assets is the call you make on the control. 

    Fewer strings means more protection. The more you let go, the more you protect.

    You Cannot Go Wrong with the Timing

    When you seek to protect your assets, you cannot afford to go wrong with the timing. And hiring a seasoned asset protection attorney in Virginia is the best choice for a prompt action. Future creditors will not be protected by fraudulent conveyance laws. 

    Plan when creditors are not looming large.

    The Transfer Method is the Crux of Asset Protection

    It is all up to you to determine the cost as well as the plausibility of asset planning. It will significantly depend on the transfer method you choose. Is it through a will or you want a direct transfer? Would an asset protection trust be the right choice? 

    It sure warrants consultation with your attorney.

    Why Hire an Asset Protection Attorney in Virginia 

    Having an asset protection plan in place is not just important for those who possess massive wealth. It is also an excellent tool of safety for valuable assets (houses, stocks, cars, jewelry) and especially for businesses against lawsuits and numerous other complications. 

    However, you cannot expect to make pragmatic asset protection decisions without professional assistance. Here’s why you will need to hire an asset protection lawyer in Virginia. You can: 

    Safeguard your assets from future foreseeable creditors, lawsuits and divorce

    Stay up-to-date with the ever-changing laws

    Protect against the liabilities of a business

    Keep your documentation on point

    Frequently Asked Questions

    1. What do you mean by asset protection?

    Asset protection planning is the ethical process of reviewing financial assets and restructuring those assets to leverage certain legal exemptions. These exemptions are most likely to place your holdings beyond the reach of potential future creditors, predators, divorce and lawsuits. 

    Not only does asset protection help in insulating assets from creditor attack, it even allows you to deal with future creditors from a position of strength. This prevents you from reacting defensively when your assets are at immediate risk.

    2. Why is Asset Protection in Virginia necessary?

    The ultimate objective of asset protection is to prevent and significantly reduce risk by insulating your assets from the creditors’ claims, divorce and lawsuits. It ensures that you are able to leave a legacy behind for your loved ones. 

    The risks of business losses and the losses due to estate tax can be alleviated by asset protection. You are at a much lower risk of being the target of a lawsuit once you’ve gotten your assets protected.

    3. Is it of any advantage to combine an estate plan with asset protection planning?

    It is important and beneficial to combine estate planning with asset protection. If you are planning to embark on an asset protection structure, it needs to be in sync with your estate plan. 

    This is necessary because at the time when you need to probate the estate and distribute your assets, you don’t want to deal with any legal conflicts.

    4. What asset protection plan should I choose?

    There is never a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to asset protection. Factors such as your assets, liabilities, risks, family, and much more can help you determine which asset protection plan would suit you the best. 

    To make it all a lot easier, you can hire one of Virginia’s well respected asset protection attorneys who can help you formulate an appropriate plan. Talk to us today.

    5. How to determine whether I should opt for asset protection?

    If you have accumulated assets like real estate, bonds, stocks, and other investments, asset protection is the right choice for you. You should review your holdings before it gets too late.
