    Asset Protection Requires Proper Planning

    Newport Beach Law Firm

    It’s unclear how long this economic slump will last. One thing is certain, however, it’s not likely to change anytime soon. And, while the “times” have taken their toll on people, so have “creditors.”

    If you want to protect your assets from “future creditors,” then know that planning must take place well in advance.

    As a reminder of some of the basics of asset protection, I happened upon this article on the topic of “fraudulent conveyance.” Simply put, creditors and the laws that protect them have every reason to be wary of those last minute tricks some people try to pull to hide their assets (it would be pretty difficult to be a creditor if last minute tricks were allowed).

    As a result, laws are set up to void slick moves to defraud just creditors. In fact, they are aptly designated “fraudulent transfers.” Bottom line: If there’s already a creditor in the picture, and one that’s sniffing around no less, then it’s already too late.

    Of course, you have every reason to want to protect your assets. Who doesn’t? Accordingly, make sure you seek qualified legal counsel before making moves with your assets that will be ineffective… or get you in legal trouble.

    Contact Meier Law Firm today and learn how to protect your assets.
