ASSET and TAX PROTECTION
Asset protection seems to be on everyone's mind lately. No one wants to end up living under a bridge. destitute, and without assets. It has been said that at time there is one Lawsuit filed in California for every 4 people who live here! I have not check the accuracy of that, but, from what I have seen come through my office, I would not doubt it at all. Suits are being filed by neighbors, by customers, by family members and people you have never even met before. My wife received a settlement check just the other day for a class action suit she did not even know she was part of!
I have seen creditors take everything that one family had, basically putting them on the streets with no house, no money and nothing of value. I have seen the tax man put a man out of business because of excessive taxes charged, the state take the house that had been in the family for generations, simply because mom was unlucky enough to required long term care. I have seen unknow relatives wrench assets away from a surviving spouse, simply because no estate planning had been done.
Creditors come in all shapes and sizes, but they can be devastating to your estate. In our BLOG we will show you things that can help you "Keep what is Yours."
