What Is Asset Protection?

Asset protection is a way to keep your assets safe from lawsuits or creditors.

It involves legally arranging your assets so they are hard for others to claim.

This is things like money, property, and investments.

Our Austell asset protection lawyers will:

  • set up trusts
  • use legal entities like LLCs for businesses
  • set up insurance for extra protection

The idea is to protect your stuff while following the law.

It’s often planned before any legal issues happen.

Asset protection strategies vary based on individual needs and local laws.

What Asset Protection Services Include

Now you know what asset protection lawyers do.

So, let’s look at what our services include:

  1. Risk Assessment. Our lawyers first review your financial situation. We identify potential risks to your assets from lawsuits or creditors.
  2. Legal Structures. To protect assets, we may set up trusts or limited liability companies (LLCs). Each structure is chosen based on your specific needs.

  4. Exemption Planning. Our lawyers use laws that protect certain assets from creditors. This varies by jurisdiction but often includes retirement accounts and life insurance.
  5. Insurance. Adequate insurance coverage is crucial. This includes standard policies and specialized insurance for extra protection.
  6. Estate Planning. Asset protection is often combined with estate planning in Austell. This ensures your wealth is both protected and distributed as you wish.
  7. Regular Updates. Asset protection strategies need regular reviews. This ensures they remain effective over time.
  8. Legal Compliance. Our lawyers make sure all strategies are legal. Avoiding fraudulent actions is key.

This is Melissa. She’s going to be your Austell asset protection lawyer. Shawn will schedule an appointment for you to talk to Melissa. She will ask a few simple questions. From there, she creates the estate plan, has you review it, then you sign, and it’s complete!

How You Should Prepare

After you fill out the form, you’ll schedule your call with your attorney. 

But, how do you prepare for that call? 

What information and thoughts should you gather? 

This list gives you a few ideas of where to start for our first conversation. 

  1. Your Goals and Worries. Think about what you want from your asset protection plan. Think about how you want to separate your businesses and investments. Make sure to tell us what fears you have so that we can address those with your asset protection plan. 
  2. List of What You Own. Know the basic stuff you own. Like, your house, any money in the bank, things you’ve invested in, and any business entities. You don’t need exact numbers, just a general idea.
  3. Family and Who Gets Stuff. Think about who you want to give your things to. This could be family, friends, or even charities. If you have young kids or someone who needs extra care, remember to think about them too.
  4. Papers You Already Have. If you already made a will or something like that, even if it’s old, tell your lawyer about it.
  5. Questions You Have. Write down any questions you want to ask. Like, how much it costs, how your lawyer talks to you, or special things about your stuff.
  6. Special Things About You. Be ready to talk about anything special. Like, if you own a business, have houses in different places, or have a mixed family.
  7. Who Will Help Manage Your Stuff. Think about who you trust to handle your things and make choices if you can’t, like who will be in charge of your will.
  8. How You Feel Talking to the Lawyer. Notice if you feel good talking to the lawyer. Do they listen? Do they make things easy to understand? Are they nice about your needs?
