Asset and Creditor Protection Planning

Asset and Creditor Protection Planning generally gets a bad rap. People for the most part are upstanding members of society who honor their debts, obligations and commitments. Their tendency is to automatically go to the dark side when they think about Asset and Creditor Protection Planning. They look upon Asset and Creditor Protection Planning with disdain as illegal, immoral, and unethical. They associate Asset and Creditor Protection Planning with tax evasion and money laundering and mistakenly believe that it is reserved for the rich and famous (or nefarious).

Asset and Creditor Protection Planning is none of those things. It is the adoption of planning strategies that are designed to lower a person’s financial profile and make them a less attractive target for a lawsuit. The primary effects of Asset and Creditor Protection Planning is to discourage lawsuits, promote favorable settlements in the event a claim arises, and to shield assets if litigation becomes inevitable. Asset and Creditor Protection Planning done well gives the asset owner leverage with which to negotiate a quick and reasonable settlement.

Whether you need Asset and Creditor Protection Planning is not a question of if. It’s a matter of degree. Exposure to creditors comes from the least expected sources. Even the most financially secure are exposed.
