Many of us will be making tough decisions in the coming weeks. Is it safe to go to Grandma's house for Thanksgiving dinner? Should we invite our friends or neighbors to the house for a holiday get-together? Is it wise to drive around town delivering gifts to my clients?
Navigating the holidays is hard enough without having to consider a pandemic. Deciding what is safe for you and your family will no doubt be difficult this year. Whatever you decide, making sure your family and your business is protected is more important than ever.
The Fowler Law Firm PC is offering quick and easy estate planning sessions for anyone who is traveling for the holidays or is concerned about not having the proper protections in place in the event of sudden incapacitating illness. You do not have to know how you want to divide up your worldly possessions to take some important steps to protect the people you love.
Do you have a succession plan in place for your start up or family business? You and your business partner(s) should have a few simple protections in place in case one of you falls ill or becomes debilitated. Without these protections, you or your business partner(s) may not be able to access important bank accounts or lines of credit or know who has the legal authority to assume duties of an owner or manager.
It is easy to think these things are not of utmost importance during normal circumstances. But with COVID-19 cases on the rise throughout the country and so many uncertainties about what is safe and what is not, these matters are more important than ever. There are some easy and inexpensive steps you can take to give yourself, your family, and your business partner(s) the gift of peace of mind.
Let us help. Our staff is prepared to meet via Zoom for a consultation and return your documents to you the next day so you can enjoy the holidays.
