One of the least expensive and most effective methods of asset protection doesn’t involve your assets, but the assets of the people you love. A commonly overlooked opportunity in estate planning is to leave your heirs’ inheritance in a manner that is totally protected from their creditors, including lawsuits and divorce, yet still in their control and for their benefit. We call these trusts “Lifetime Asset Protection Trusts.”
And the opportunity isn’t just for what you pass on – it’s also available for what you may receive. We have helped clients set up Inheritor’s Trusts, which serve as empty vessels ready to receive their inheritances. The Inheritor’s Trust is prepared to our clients’ specifications in a manner that keeps its assets a protected nest egg for life. In that way, all that our clients’ parents, grandparents or other loved ones need to do is change their will or living trust to designate the Inheritor’s Trust as the beneficiary of their estate.
