2018 is fast approaching. Do you have an idea for a resolution? Popular resolutions like working out or dieting are always the first things most people think of, but only 8% of people who make resolutions actually keep them. (1)
Consider getting your legal matters in order for your 2018 resolution. Here are three legal resolutions your Legal Resources Plan Attorney can help you keep in 2018:
- Get your estate plan ready. (2) If you haven’t had a will or other estate documents like the Durable Power of Attorney and health care proxy created or recently updated, make a resolution to get that sorted out in 2018. If you already have an estate plan laid out, contact your attorney for a consultation to review your current plan and go over any life changes that may require your plan to be updated. Remember, your Legal Resources Legal Services Plan covers periodic updates to many estate documents so you always know everything is up to date.
- Take control of your debt. (2) Many people add “curb spending” to their resolutions list, but there may be more that can be done to help with debt. Your attorney may have options for reducing debt, or getting fair communications from your creditors.
- Handle that outstanding legal matter. (2) There is probably something in your life that is looming over your head and feels too big for you to tackle on your own. Maybe it’s a traffic incident or citation, rental agreement violation, or family matter that you just don’t know how to handle. A consultation with you Plan Attorney can give you a perspective and options that you didn’t know you had.
No matter what, we have the option to make the new year a great one. Set important resolutions and clear your legal concerns off your list!
