Legal Checkup for the New Year

Happy New Year! A new year brings with it a fresh opportunity to get your life organized and accomplish your goals. Getting your new year started off right with important legal documents is beneficial no matter what stage of life you are in, but it's especially important if you are expecting any life changes this year.


Here are some of the ways a legal plan can help you with various life events you may be planning this year:

  1. Getting Married 
    An attorney can provide assistance during the complicated process of changing your name as well as help you create or update estate planning documents for this new phase of your life.

  2. Having a Baby 
    Congratulations! There are many legal issues to consider with a new baby, including updating wills and drafting estate planning documents. An attorney can be an invaluable resource for your growing family.
     
  3. Buying or Selling a Home
    From the home inspection to completing deeds and signing agreements for repairs — there are numerous legal issues involved in purchasing a home. An attorney can answer any questions you have during the home buying, or selling process, as well as review and draft documents for you.
     
  4. Becoming a Caregiver
    Because there are many financial and legal issues involved in being a caregiver, having access to affordable legal help can be invaluable. If you are caring for a loved one, you shouldn't have to do it alone.
