How Does Asset Protection Work in Texas?

Asset protection in Texas is a proactive strategy that involves careful planning before facing any creditor challenges. Once legal action has been initiated against you, it's often too late to establish effective safeguards. At Willingham Law Firm, PC., we employ various legal tools, including the strategic use of trusts, to shield your assets from potential threats.

Some asset protection measures may include:

  • Irrevocable Asset Protection Trusts: These trusts create a legal separation between you and your assets, protecting them from creditor claims. It's important to note that once finalized, irrevocable trusts cannot be altered.

  • Texas Legacy Trusts: Offering protection against future creditors, these irrevocable trusts grant you, as the trust maker, the ability to benefit from the trust during your lifetime. They typically feature spendthrift clauses to safeguard beneficiaries from self-transfers.

  • Foreign Asset Protection Trusts: These offshore trusts, governed by the jurisdiction in which they're established, shield your assets from judgments imposed by U.S. courts.

  • Homestead Protections: Texas law shields your homestead from forced sale to satisfy many debts, up to a specified amount. Certain personal property, life insurance proceeds, retirement accounts, 529 college savings accounts, and annuities also enjoy protection, although mortgage defaults are excluded.

  • Umbrella Insurance Policies: These policies go beyond the coverage limits of your existing insurance, offering critical protection in the event of an unforeseen event.
