Your End of the Year Legal Checklist

Your End of the Year Legal Checklist

As 2016 comes to an end, it’s time to look to 2017. While making resolutions and plans for a new year is something almost everyone does, many people don’t realize a new year is a great opportunity to follow up or make some legal arrangements they have been putting off for a while.  Here is your official legal checklist of things you need to do (or at least address) in the upcoming year!

  • Get your Estate in Order
    2016 was certainly a year full of lessons and teachable moments, for example Prince’s passing reminded people of how important having an up-to-date will is. Estate planning is crucial for making sure your property and possessions are managed according to your wishes after you pass.  Use 2017 as a year to consider those tough decisions and consult with your lawyer to make sure those choices are in writing.
  • Mind Your Business
    Are you considering making your entrepreneurial dreams a reality in 2017 and starting a new business? There are many legal steps that go into the process of starting a business and our lawyers are experienced and ready to help you establish a strong one. Perhaps you are a veteran business owner, but have let some legal issues slide to the back burner to keep up with day-to-day operations. Set aside some time in 2017 to come sit down with our lawyers and let them go over any areas of concern or just take a gander at everything to make sure it looks good.
  • Family First
    Something about a “new” year can often lead people to making big changes in their life. Whether you are considering expanding your family and want to explore adoption or possibly need to look into child custody and support, our attorneys are experienced in all aspects of family law and ready to represent clients in any situation.

As you are making resolutions this year, be sure to not neglect these crucial legal issues. Our team of trusted lawyers is ready to help you make 2017 your best year yet! Contact Schulz Stephenson Law today or visit us at www.carteretlaw.com.
