It’s A Wonderful Life – that classic, feel good, holiday movie – has become a staple since its debut in 1946. There’s a reason this delightful film has stood the test of time for the past seventy years – because it reminds us that the holidays are a time for gratitude, family, and reflection. Those same principles apply to estate planning. Creating an estate plan is a selfless act that reminds you to be grateful for, and reflect upon, a life well-lived, and to provide your family with clear guidelines and valuable peace of mind later on.

An estate plan is a smart way to protect and provide for your loved ones after your demise. Having an estate plan means your family has less stress to deal with in an already stressful and emotional time. Additionally, instituting an estate plan now means wrapping up the current year and entering the new year with your all your legal, personal, and financial business in order. The upcoming new year is an ideal time to celebrate a clean slate and set new goals. The end of the year is also the perfect time to reflect on your current financial and healthcare situation and create a plan for your future.

Estate planning isn’t traditionally tied to the winter holiday season, but this time of family and celebration is a good time for families at all stages of life to make the important decisions that go into creating an estate plan. That includes having a skilled lawyer listen to your needs and preferences and having them draw up three important documents that ensure your wishes are met. Those legal documents include a Will, a Power of Attorney, and an Advanced Health Care Directive.

This trio of crucial documents is customized to meet your specific needs. That means you choose who makes important decisions in your stead, who receives guardianship of your children, and who retains possession of your belongings after your demise. Tying up loose ends and starting 2018 with peace of mind is the New Year’s resolution that lasts a lifetime. The attorney at the Grissom Law is experienced in Georgia law and estate planning.
