3 Principles of Asset Protection

More Relinquishing Means More Protection

You need to make the right call on how much control you want to relinquish. The more control you have over your assets, the more accessible the asset becomes to your creditor(s) if a lawsuit arises thereof.
Fewer strings means more protection.

There’s No Going Wrong with the Timing

You can’t go wrong with the timing. And that is where hiring an asset protection lawyer in New York will help you. Fraudulent conveyance laws are in place to protect unforeseeable future creditors.

Plan when creditors are not looming large.

The Transfer Method is of the Essence

The cost as well as the plausibility of asset planning will depend to a great extent on the transfer method. Is it a direct transfer you want through a will? Or would you like an asset protection trust?

It sure warrants deliberation with your attorney.

Why Hire a New York Asset Protection Attorney?

Asset protection is not just important for those who possess massive wealth. It is, in fact, a great tool of safety for businesses against lawsuits and a number of other complications.

Here is the deal. It is practically impossible to always take the right asset protection decisions without professional help. Here’s why you will need to hire one. You can:

Always stay updated with the laws

Protect your assets from future foreseeable creditors

Decide on the liabilities of a business

Stay current with your documentation

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What is asset protection?

Asset protection is an arrangement wherein one can protect their holdings (in an entirely legal & ethical manner) from the reach of their future foreseeable creditors. Taking advantage of the available legal exemptions these holdings can either be placed out of reach or made difficult to reach by the said creditors.

This arrangement places you in a position of strength rather than defence. The process is carried out by reviewing and restructuring the assets.

2. Can an asset protection attorney in New York protect my retirement assets from creditors?

Yes. It is very much possible. They can do so by making you include those assets officially in your retirement plan. According to the federal law, such assets cannot be reached by creditors.

A few examples of such assets are:
⦁ Pension plans
⦁ Profit sharing
⦁ 401(k) plans.
* IRAs may or may not be protected from creditors. Please consult your local attorney for asset protection laws in Maryland.

3. When is the best time for asset protection?

The best time is much before you can see potential creditors. A few practical cases would be:

⦁ Before you start seeing problems in your marriage
⦁ 2 years or earlier if you plan to file for bankruptcy
⦁ If you see a lawsuit coming but one hasn’t been filed yet
⦁ Before your business goes under
⦁ Before the IRS plans to audit you

4. What is the best asset protection plan?

There is never a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to asset protection. It takes a thorough review of your assets, liabilities, risks, family and many other factors to come up with a sound asset protection plan. The best bet is to hire one of Maryland’s reputed asset protection attorneys who can help you formulate an appropriate plan. Talk to us today.

5. How do I know if I need asset protection?

It is rather simple. If you have accumulated assets such as property, stocks and investments, bonds, etc., you need asset protection from the point of view as to what if someone sued you.
