What is your New Years Resolution?

That time of year has come....we have to start thinking about what we want to accomplish, change or do in the new year.

There are some who refuse to make New Years Resolutions.  The people who do, more often than not, will break them.  

I want to talk about getting your affairs in order:  Do you have your Last Will and Testament completed?  What about your Medical Durable Powers of Attorney?  Your General Durable Power of Attorney?

Most people do not want to think about these things because "thinking" about them means that you recognize that life is fragile and none of us want to think that our time is coming to an end. 

Here's the problem:  What you don't think about today your family HAS to think about later. What is a simple process for you today becomes a complicated process for your family tomorrow.  
Who knows what you want.....BETTER THAN YOU?
Ask yourself these questions:
  • If you were in the hospital who would make medical decisions if you couldn't?
  • How long are you going to be hooked up to life support machines if your family has to make that decision?
  • If you were unable to pay your bills who would do it for you?
  • That safety deposit box you have all your important papers in....who is going to be able to access them when you cannot?
  • That precious item you hold dear to your heart....who is going to have it when it is no longer yours to have?
  • Who is going to make sure all of your wishes are carried out?
Don't think of getting your affairs in order as a "bad" thing.  Many clients are relieved when it is completed.  When they call they sometimes say, "We've put this off long enough, it's time."  When they leave there is a sense of relief and "can't believe that it wasn't as 'dreary' as they thought it would be.

There are many ways you can complete these documents:
  • Go to your local office supply store and buy them and fill them out.  One caution on this; make sure your bank, doctor, hospital, etc. will accept them. There is nothing worse than spending $100.00 on documents and hours/days/weeks to fill them out to only find out they cannot be used.
  • Paralegal can type these documents for you but make sure the documents they use are State approved, preferably Attorney written documents.
  • Attorney:  When you need legal advice or a trust it is essential you speak with an Attorney!
Here at Legal Edge Consulting, LLC we can type your COLORADO STATE APPROVED, ATTORNEY WRITTEN documents.  Want to know the best part?  We have Attorneys who will review these documents after they are completed for ONLY $50.00 and should you and the Attorney decide changes should be made...they are done for FREE!

If you need a trust or have a more complicated Will we have Attorneys that we can refer you to that will 100% take care of YOU and your needs!!

Here's the best part:  If you are unsure of what you need call us and schedule an appointment.  We cannot give you any legal advice but what we can do is get an Attorney on the phone who can tell you what is best for your situation.  If we can help you we will.  If we can't we will schedule the appointment with the Attorney at that time.  There is NO CHARGE for this appointment if we are unable to help you.

If you are needing to get your affairs in order call us!  Documents are completed in about 1-2 hours depending on how many documents you need and if you are an individual or a couple.  When you leave you will completed EXECUTED documents that are signed, witnessed and notarized!!
