Many people equate financial success with the accumulation of wealth. Equally important, however, is protecting that wealth once it has been acquired. While insurance policies provide some critical protection, there are still numerous circumstances where your wealth could be at risk from lawsuits or creditors. This is no small concern, considering that we live in a highly litigious society. More lawsuits are filed in the United States than the rest of the world combined. All of which explains why Asset Protection Planning is so very important, and having your plan designed and implemented by a law firm with experience in this area.
Your Asset Protection Plan should protect you and your spouse from predators looking to make a claim on your assets while you are alive, and protect your children’s inheritance against creditors and predators after you are gone. The latter can involve issues such as ensuring your child’s inheritance is safe should he or she get divorced. Similarly, your grandchildren may need protection to make sure they receive their inheritances if your child dies and your son-in-law or daughter-in-law remarries. Sadly, your children may even need protection from their own decisions if, for instance, they are not ready or able to handle a large inheritance, or they suffer from drug or alcohol dependency.
