It’s Saturday, and I’m waiting at the dealership to have some maintenance done on my car. Keeping your car up and not waiting until something breaks down is a great way to get more mileage out of your vehicle – but did you know the same is true of your legal affairs, too?
Just like parts wear out on your car, your legal documents can wear out, too. That Will you had made after your first child was born may not address your current wishes. Or maybe you haven’t looked at your power of attorney in a while, and your first choice for you agent has died or moved away. Katten Benson Zachry, LLP recommends that you pull out your documents every three to five years and take a look. If you do end up relying on your planning, then they will be up-to-date.
Also, we promise not to keep you waiting as long as the car dealership!
