Every year, at the start of the year, many of us make New Year’s resolutions. We think about the things we want to be different in our lives, and we resolve that we’re going to change them. For some of us, this actually results in life changes every year. For most of us, we have the best of intentions, but life gets busy, or challenges come up, and by February our resolutions are a thing of the past. Personally, I’m resolving to make more time for creativity in 2021—dust off my keyboard, do some more crafts and artwork with my kids. You can ask me in a few weeks what we’ve created, and we’ll see how it goes. I’m pretty sure my 1st grader and preschooler are resolving to find a way to get me to bake more cookies in 2021.
One very popular New Year’s resolution that people make at this time of year is to finally contend with their estate and financial planning. There is no need to wait for this because scheduling an initial meeting or making an update to your estate plan is easier than ever with our virtual meetings via Zoom. We can also exchange documents through secure portals, which simplifies the sharing of vital documents and information in a secure manner.
Given the threat of COVID-19 and the possibility of sudden, severe illnesses, disability, and death, we encourage everyone to call an estate planning attorney and begin the estate planning process as soon as possible in 2021, so that you can have peace of mind that your family will be taken care of in the event of death or disability. Procrastination is no longer an excuse, as it is easier than ever to meet with us virtually over Zoom, while you remain in the safety of your own home. If you have ever resolved to get your estate planning in order, now is your chance to finally check that resolution off your list.
We look forward to seeing you early this year so we can help you to begin the estate planning process. Our team at Family Estate Planning Law Group can help you navigate the process of estate planning and finally accomplish this New Year’s resolution. We would love to talk to you about how to create an estate plan that will ensure your family is taken care of even in the midst of uncertain times.
