Is Asset Protection Important?
The protection of assets is important to everyone, even those who have yet to amass an empire. When you are just starting to save, you want to be sure that you are making the right choices. When you take the time to make decisions based on your wants and needs, you are taking steps to keep your assets safe. Part of this decision-making process should be understanding the types of accounts you are investing in. If you are running your own company, it also means understanding how to choose the right business entity and making appropriate choices for the structure of your business.
Once you have been fortunate enough to obtain financial security, you want to be sure that your assets are protected. You need to be sure your assets are protected in the case of a divorce, lawsuit or unexpected expenses. If you are leaving any of your assets to children or other heirs, you must also be sure that those assets are protected during and after the transfer.
If you have an established farm or business, you can consider these to be your legacy. Both are something you can hand down through the generations, making their protection important. You don’t want anything to make it impossible for your heirs to continue operations of your farm or business. Losses during your lifetime, or even after your death, can impede or even ruin the continued operation of your farm or business.
An Ellijay asset protection attorney can provide you with advice, guidance and assistance in understanding the risks unique to your situation and help you make plans to protect what you have put together.
What Kind of Asset Protection Assistance Do I Need?
The types of asset protection you need depend on what you have built. For example, different types of trusts can ensure a timely transfer of your assets to selected heirs after your passing. Trusts can help reduce estate taxes. Furthermore, various trusts can also protect your assets should you find it necessary to enter a nursing home or assisted living center for extended care. An asset protection attorney can help you select the right type of trust.
Other types of tools are available to help protect the wealth that you have amassed. Incorporation, powers of attorney and other types of contractual agreements can be valuable in protecting your assets. More specifically, incorporation can help protect your business; a power of attorney can give someone control of your assets when necessary; and a prenuptial agreement can ensure that you keep what you entered a marriage with should that marriage result in divorce.
