Asset protection in the estate planning context is about helping clients make sure their wishes will be carried out while minimizing negative consequences to their beneficiaries or heirs. Asset protection also involves sheltering property from the government through carefully designed estate planning tools.
Choose An Estate Plan That Is Right For You
To help you decide if asset protection and estate planning are important for you, answer these questions for yourself:
- Do you have a will or trust? If not, your assets might not go to the people you choose.
- Do you have heirs? If not, your property could go to the state of Michigan, unless you specify otherwise.
- Is nursing home care likely for you or a loved one? If it is state-subsidized care, the government may surcharge the estate to collect back that money.
Every client’s needs are different and many more questions and issues may pertain to your situation. Our asset protection attorneys in Sterling Heights will discuss your complete circumstances to help us advise you on which tools are right for you. When your needs change, we can help you continue your protection strategy, such as with second or subsequent marriages.
The point of our asset protection practice is to help your estate avoid unnecessary court administration after you die, as well as tax consequences and excessive fees. Each of our partners has been doing this for more than 40 years. We have the knowledge and skills in estate planning to address all of your needs and prepare a solid estate plan to protect estate assets.
