Legal New Year's Resolutions to Start 2019 Off Right

Legal resolutions.pngIt's a new year, and with the hustle and bustle of the holidays behind us, now is a great time to set goals. While many people focus on physical health when it comes to New Year's resolutions, legal health is something to consider as well. We've put together a quick list of three legal New Year's resolutions that might be worth tackling in 2019.

1. Estate planning - Wills, trusts and powers of attorney are all legal topics that deserve consideration. If you have children, you may want to consider working with an attorney to put in writing who will care for them in the event that something happens to you and/or your spouse. A new year is also an opportunity to broach the topic of power of attorney with a parent, particularly if that parent has any serious health issues. If you want to make sure your assets - whether great or small - are distributed as you wish after your passing, having a conversation with an attorney can get that process started. Oftentimes people put off estate planning and it's easy to say you'll handle it another time. But none of us knows what the future holds. Why not get some peace of mind by contacting an attorney at Brown Paindiris & Scott?

2. Family law - Have you been thinking about making a change? A new year is often the right time to take the plunge. Perhaps you are separated from a spouse and you want to take the next step a file for divorce. Or perhaps you are in an unhappy marriage and want to know what your options are. If you are already divorced with a custody agreement in place, a new year is a great time to sit with your lawyer and review you documented agreements and make sure they are up-to-date and accurate.

3. Business law - Have you started a business that's growing? That's great! As your business has grown, have you spoken with an attorney to make sure you have set up your business in the correct legal way? Are you aware of the different areas of legal exposure that you may have in your industry? The business lawyers at Brown Paindiris & Scott can walk you through what legal steps you need to take to protect your business as it continues to grow.

In closing, don't let the motivation for a fresh start that comes with a new year pass you by. If any of the issues identified above resonated with you, why not make it a New Year's resolution to get it addressed?
