Facing a possible wrongful death lawsuit, how can we protect

This answer was rated:

Facing a possible wrongful death lawsuit, how can we protect our home and IRA accounts. On a fixed income (social security)?

Who in the family is facing the suit? What are the assets that you are concerned about and how are they titled? Do you know why the lawyers were not concerned about protecting personal assets?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Our daughter,age 21 lives at home. under 300K in IRA assets. Can they be taken by a court judgment in civil action?

No. The IRA is exempt from creditor's claims. That's most likely why the lawyers were not concerned about it.
