    Ensure that your Assets will Be Safe at All Time

    The more you delve into your business, the more your assets become exposed to the risk of being claimed by future creditors. Our attorneys ensure that your assets are safe now and later.

    Protect liquid assets prudently.

    Safeguard assets that your insurance leaves out.

    Protect your assets from likely lawsuits.

    3 Principles of Asset Protection

    The More you Let Go, the More you Protect

    A rather simplistic principle is that the more control you give up on your assets, the less accessible they will be to your future creditors.

    So, in case a lawsuit arises in the future, the assets that you no longer have control over cannot be claimed by your creditors to pay off your debts.

    The Timing Is of the Essence

    The biggest advantage of hiring a professional asset protection lawyer in Texas is that you can nail the timing.

    Going wrong with the timing can make you the defaulter party to Fraudulent conveyance laws. The secret is to plan when you don’t have any existing creditors

    The Transfer Method Matters Immensely

    The asset transfer method affects the cost as well as the feasibility of the transfer. You will need to choose between a will and a trust. While wills may cause more costs later, trusts, a more streamlined way to transfer will cost you initially.

    This is a decision you need to take after deliberation with your attorney.

    How you can Benefit from an Asset Protection Attorney in Texas

    Asset protection is not just for those who are affluent. It is for anyone who has assets so as to enable them to protect the same against claim by creditors should lawsuits arise in future.

    And while it may sound simple to begin with, there will always be legal modalities and sanctions involved. That’s where an asset protection lawyer in Texas can help you:

    Stay abreast of the changing laws

    Safeguard your personal assets from future creditors

    Set limits on the liabilities of your business

    Always manage the documentation perfectly

    Frequently Asked Questions

    1. Are asset protection and estate planning different?

    Yes, they are. Asset protection is an arrangement that lets one protect their assets ethically and legally from future foreseeable creditors, losses, seizures, etc.

    Asset planning is a more expansive process wherein the focus is on how a testator’s assets are managed after their demise.

    2. Do I need an expert asset protection lawyer in Texas to protect my retirement assets from creditors?

    If you’ve included your retirement assets officially in your retirement plan, you can protect these assets from the reach of your foreseeable creditors. Nevertheless, while planning your estate, you will need counsel on what you must include in your retirement plan and what you need to pass off to your family.

    3. At what age should I go for asset protection?

    In all honesty, there is no age for it, as long as you are not a minor. If you have assets, you must ideally go for asset protection. Nevertheless, here are a few special cases in which you should especially consider creating an asset protection plan:

    • Before you get married (prenuptial agreement)
    • When you start seeing the signs of trouble in your marriage
    • 2 years or more before you plan to file for bankruptcy
    • If you can see a lawsuit on the cards (but one has not been filed yet)
    • Before your business goes under
    • Before your business is due for audit by the IRS
    4. Can you recommend the best protection plan for me?

    Yes, why not. But, the thing is that there is never a one-size-fits-all plan. We will need to review your assets, liabilities, risks, family situation and other factors so that we can recommend a plan that suits you the most. Our experienced team of asset protection lawyers in Texas can help you out with a customized plan. Talk to us today.

    5. Do I need protection before setting up a business?

    Yes, especially if you have personal assets. You will need to decide on how much liability you want to limit for your business. You will need asset protection to ensure your personal assets are safe in case someone sued your business.
