Why Asset Protection is Important
An important consideration when securing your future is protecting your assets. Unfortunately, many people lose valuable property and meaningful belongings to debt and probate court after death.
For parents, ensuring that their children are provided for is of utmost importance. Assets and properties offer financial shelter against the challenges of coping with the death of one’s parents, but if those assets are lost, your children could face a difficult road ahead.
The following can happen without a proper plan in place:
- 5% or more of your assets are lost during the court process or tied up in legal proceedings
- When your child turns 18, they could receive whatever assets are left over from probate instead of the total amount
- Predatory public guardians may seek out opportunities to subvert inheritance from your beneficiaries before they come of age
While it may seem impossible that anyone would go to such lengths to undermine the system and profit from inheritances and leftover assets, it happens more than you might think. That is why it critical that you protect what matters most through secure, legal means.
Life Without a Plan
Parents of minor children should carefully consider how they will be provided for after your death. It is essential to understand that children under 18 are especially vulnerable in situations where their parents pass away before they come of age.
If a child’s parents pass away, they may be:
- Placed in the care of Child Protective Services
- Handed over to the closest relative
- Given over to a public guardian
At Aria Law, PLLC, we understand how important it is to protect your children, so we work with you to determine the best way to protect your loved ones.
