Our Asset Protection Practice
We will help you put measures in place to minimize the risk that creditors will attach or seize your property in the event of your death. Specific steps that we can assist you with include:
- The preparation and execution of trusts that protect your property — When you create a trust and transfer property to that trust, the property is no longer yours and neither passes through your estate, nor is subject to access by your creditors. We can help you with a revocable or an irrevocable trust, and with a living or testamentary trust (one that goes into effect at your death)
- The use of lifetime gifts — We can help you make lifetime gifts of property without incurring gift tax.
- Re-titling of property — We can work with you to re-title assets, such as real property, so that you own them jointly with your heirs. This can allow you use of the property until your death, but will ensure that the property immediately transfers to your heirs at your death.
- The homestead exemption for your estate — We will make certain you have properly put the homestead exemption in place, so that creditors do not have access to your house after your death.
