FLPs and FLLCs - asset protection or not?
The question of whether of not a personal family residence should be placed into a Family Limited Partnership or a Family Limited Liability Corporation is a frequent topic for discussion. The impetus for such a decision is based on the theory that the FLP or FLLC affords the owner a degree of asset protection against personal liability - because a creditor is allegedly limited to a Charging Order Remedy when trying to get at the assets inside the FLP or FLLC. This white paper reviews whether or not the Charging Order Remedy is really effective.
