Law professionals ONLY please? What are ways you can protect your house from forced sale because of a lien?

I DO NOT have a lien on the house, ty- I just want to take precautions and protect myself in this litigious USA. I do have equity in the house – quite a lot, but have two loans outstanding on it. The deed we have is a survivorship deed.
