I don’t do much criminal defense anymore, but when I was just starting out, I worked as a court-appointed attorney for a few years. The following is from a handout I prepared for new clients. Most of it applies equally
Monitor Your Plan
Is the plan working? How will you know if you never do a reality check? Are the steps you’re taking leading you down the right path? Are they moving you along at a pace that will get you where you want to be, when you want to be there? Saving for your children’s college is great (and very important), but if your plan leaves you short when it’s time for the kids to head off to school, you’ll need to find alternative solutions. Knowing this as far ahead as possible is to your advantage, because it gives you more time to change course, or plot a new course altogether. I can help you with this.
Update Your Plan
Things change. You have to adapt. Your plan has to adapt with you. A new job, a raise, a new home, a new child – all of these things can have a HUGE impact on your plan, for better or worse. If the plan accounts for such changes, especially if it anticipates the possibility of such changes in advance, adjusting your arrangement is much easier. I can help you with this.
