Most New Year’s resolutions fall along predictable lines: Eat healthier, exercise more, pay down debt, spend more time with family.
These are all good goals, and we hope those who vow lifestyle changes stick with them throughout the year.
At the same time, our estate planning lawyers in Belmont want to encourage you to consider taking this opportunity for a fresh start to get your personal financial affairs in order. The three legal documents everyone – regardless of age, wealth or family size should have – are:
- A will.
- A health care proxy.
- A durable power of attorney.
