Top Questions

One of the principal drivers behind having a family trust today is for asset protection.

First of all, if you have come out of a relationship, a family trust is an important tool in the toolbox in protecting you moving ahead in the future against possible relationship issues. It should be put in place as you come out of that past relationship. However, it cannot stand alone as you enter that new relationship but should be closely investigated in conjunction with a Contracting Out Agreement as you move into a new relationship.

Secondly, if you are in business you house and other assets should be owned by a family trust. If you can get you house into a family trust and so long as it is not used as security by a pesky creditor it should be protected against creditor attacks. Yes, there are some provisos to this but properly structured it is a very good first step in getting some good asset protection in place you’re your partner, family and for you.


Have you come out of a relationship? Are you going into a relationship with assets that should be protected for you and for your family in the event of relationship issues moving ahead?
