There are trusts that can help to make it very hard to attach assets. This is the point where a very good trust attorney may be worth the investment.

Jim,

I hadn't thought of that.  I don't have a lot of money to protect; just enough, by my calculations.  Earlier in the year I had thought about talking to a "financial adviser" about this issue, but I couldn't convince myself it would be money well spent.  I didn't want to get into a situation where I was trying to protect my investments and the advisor was trying to get his/her hands on them to the exclusion of solving my actual problem.  I do need to update/replace my will.  Maybe I can kill two birds with one lawyer.  :)

Any other ideas would be appreciated.  I would think it would be a common issue for this group.
