I'm about to get married to my long-time partner, who is an American citizen. As we plan to run a business together in the US, our lawyer suggests we sign a paper to make it more convenient for me by applying for a long-stay visa for our business establishment. I have two concerns:
1. How do I protect my family trust from any financial claims in the future as well as my personal assets, either cash or land?
2. The lawyer suggested we invest using the name of my partner solely, as a Thai citizen cannot conduct business alone in the US, and I decided to follow this advice. But I'm concerned about this strategy. I know anything can happen in business, so I want to ensure I protect my investment and family assets. This means ensuring that if the business goes south, the assets will be fairly arranged for both of us without a legal loophole giving either an advantage.
