Mediation Advantage Services - March 2020


W hen it comes to providing for your kids, you really do know best. You know what foods they love and loathe, you know when they could use some extra support before their piano recital, and you may even have an idea of what school you’d like them to attend in the future. But what happens if you’re not there? It’s not something we like to think about, but at some point, your kids will have to go out into the world without you. What if that happened tomorrow? Would you have a written plan of who will care for your kids and how you want them to be cared for? A COMPREHENSIVE PLAN FOR YOUR LOVED ONES At Mediation Advantage Services, we ensure no detail is left out of our clients’ estate plans. We craft a comprehensive, in-depth document that covers every aspect of your child’s care and even what you envision for their future. It identifies who will care for your children when you’re gone and any individuals you do not want to care for your children. It even includes doctors’ contact and medical information. You can also establish financial resources so their guardian has the means to see your vision through.

If you have pets, an estate plan can also determine their care. We establish pet trusts for families who want to ensure there is a caretaker for their beloved companions. A pet trust includes instructions for how you want your pet to be treated and who will care for them, as well as veterinarian information and financial resources you designate. A good estate plan serves as a blueprint of what your hopes and expectations are for the care of the most precious people and animals in your life, which provides the guardian you appoint with the road map they need. If you’ve been putting off creating this important document, for the love of your family, make it a priority this year. LEARN HOW TO CONFIDENTLY NAVIGATE LIFE CHANGES

YOUR 30-DAY CHALLENGE 10 MINUTES A DAY OF READING FOR 21 DAYS This month, I want to challenge you to bring more fiction into your life. Reading works of fiction can spur your imagination and help you relate better to others, among other benefits. For 10 minutes a day over 21 days, take that time to read a work of fiction. If you have little ones, get them in on it by incorporating a book into their bedtime routine. Need some ideas? For adults, check out “An American Marriage” by Tayari Jones, and “Beloved” by Toni Morrison; for kids, try the “Harry Potter” series and “Can I Touch Your Hair? Poems of Race, Mistakes, and Friendship.”
