Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you tonight.

An irrevocable trust here would be a great means to try and protect your house given your circumstances. You may decide to do this as a protective measure.

Reference..

You would create the trust and deed the property into the trust.

I wish you the best here and thanks again.
