Can I legally transfer my properties and assets to a trust or a company if I get sued in Australia?

While it is possible to transfer properties and assets to a trust or a company, doing so with the intent to evade legitimate creditors or legal claims can have serious legal consequences. Transfers made with the intent to hinder, delay, or defraud creditors are typically considered fraudulent and can be challenged by creditors or the court. Australia, like many jurisdictions, has laws in place to prevent fraudulent asset transfers. It’s essential to consult with legal professionals to ensure any asset protection or restructuring measures are done within the bounds of the law and do not violate legal obligations to creditors or the court.
