Safeguarding Your Estate from Lawsuits, 
Creditors and Predators

The Vanover Law Firm, P.A. has created and trademarked our very popular Asset Protection Trust. Its called the Florida Asset Preservation Irrevocable Trust or FAPIT™ for short. Only the Vanover Law Firm, P.A. has the FAPIT™ trust.

Which Assets Are Exempt from Creditors in Florida?

Not everything you own can be claimed by your creditors. In fact, Florida law provides seven classes under which assets can be protected.

These classes are as follows:

  • Your homestead, as long as it’s owned by a natural person and is one-half acre or smaller in a city or municipality, or up to 160 acres outside of a city or municipality.
  • The cash value and proceeds from both life insurance policies and annuities, including interest earned in certain plans and Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs).
  • Wages paid to the head of a household who’s not in control of their own salary.
  • Property owned between spouses as “tenants by the entirety,” where only claims against one spouse can be exempted

Leveraging these exemptions properly can provide stronger asset protection than other strategies that merely protect property, such as those that involve limited liability companies (LLCs) and limited liability partnerships.

Regardless, your strategy must be unique to your needs and how you hold your assets. Our asset protection lawyers in Fort Walton Beach have the experience and skill it takes to advise you of the options that can help you meet your goals.
