Trusts Hendry County: Why We Fight
Hendry County is a predominantly agricultural community in southwest Florida. The county is home to large sugar and citrus plantations, as well as smaller farms and ranches. For many years, the agricultural industry has been the economic engine of Hendry County. However, the agricultural industry is not without its problems. Large agricultural companies have been accused of environmental racism, exploitation of workers, and other unethical practices. In response, a number of community organizations have formed to fight for the rights of Hendry County residents. In this blog post, we will explore some of the issues facing Hendry County and why we believe it is important to fight for justice in our community.
What is a trust?
A trust is a legal arrangement in which one party (the trustee) holds assets on behalf of another party (the beneficiary). The trustee has a fiduciary duty to manage the assets in the trust for the benefit of the beneficiary. Trusts can be created for a variety of purposes, including estate planning, asset protection, and tax mitigation.
In Hendry County, trusts are often used to protect assets from creditors. Florida is a debtor-friendly state, which means that creditors can go after a debtor’s assets even if those assets are held in a trust. However, there are certain types of trusts that can provide some protection from creditors. For example, spendthrift trusts and self-settled trusts can help protect assets from creditors.
We fight for our clients’ rights to create and maintain trusts because we believe that they are an important tool for protecting assets. If you have questions about whether a trust is right for you, we encourage you to contact our office to speak with one of our experienced attorneys.
