Lockdowns suck but that doesn’t mean you can’t get some important things done.
After the lockdown haze lifts and the reality of homeschooling sinks in, it’s time to get some things done that you have probably been putting off.
1. Marie Condo your wardrobe
I get so much satisfaction from cleaning out my wardrobe.
Out with the old and make room for those late-night online shopping purchases (if we can’t go out then we have to have some vices right).
2. Organise your Will
The number of people who say to me “oh yeah I really need to get my will sorted” is astounding.
I get it! It’s low on the priority list when day to day life gets in the way. But it actually should be top of the list.
Don’t you want to be the one to determine who gets all the assets you have worked so hard for?
If so, add getting a will straight to the top of that list.
You can book a free 15-minute estate call online.
3. Process that Divorce
Similar to wills, the number of people who have not filed for divorce even though they have been separated for years is really high. Usually, because it has fallen to the bottom of the pile.
The Family Court website provides a DIY option which many people are happy to navigate themselves. But if you want a lawyer or a process server to assist, then Coastal Lawyers can guide you through the process.
So are you ready to get some help?
