Mother's Day is almost upon us. Instead of overpriced lotions and hastily bought greeting cards, why not help your mom get her legal ducks in a row?

Let's face it, your mother probably already has a mug (or two... or three) that say "World's No. 1 Mom," and flower arrangements will quickly wither. But does your mom have an updated estate plan, an advance directive, or a durable financial power of attorney?

Turn to for these simple ways to meet your mother's legal needs:

Legal Planning for All Ages

FindLaw launched its new Legal Planning tools last summer, and these resources can help moms in all stages of life:

  • Young moms. Whether you're a young mom or just close to one, FindLaw offers legal tips for young families which can make a difference down the road, including a New Parent Checklist and a guide to the home-buying process.
