Now that we have rung in the New Year it’s time to scratch off some of your New Year to do’s. One terrific New Year task to complete is to draft and execute a Power of Attorney. Power of attorney forms allow you to appoint another to act on your behalf in regards to your finances. You can get a Minnesota power of attorney by following this link https://mncourts.gov/Help-Topics/Power-of-Attorney.aspx or a Wisconsin power of attorney by following this link https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/library/f-00036.htm. In the event you become unable to manage your financial affairs and you don’t have a power of attorney in place, someone will likely need to start a guardianship action which could be expensive and cumbersome. A power of attorney form is a quick and easy way to avoid having to get the court involved.
And if you have bigger goals for the New Year and are considering a divorce here is a good link for Minnesota, https://mncourts.gov/Help-Topics/Divorce.aspx, and one for Wisconsin, https://www.wicourts.gov/forms1/circuit/ccform.jsp?FormName=&FormNumber=&beg_date=&end_date=&StatuteCite=&Category=55&SubCat=Pre-judgment.
If any of this seems too overwhelming, or you just want a second set of eyes (which I always recommend!), call Borman Law Firm today.
Happy New Year! Yay for 2021!
