Friday’s Food for Thought-

Happy New Year, all! As we start both a new year and new decade, here’s a helpful hint to bear in mind when signing & dating legal documents: Rather than simply abbreviating the year as “20”, make sure to write out all four digits of the year (2020). Otherwise, someone could alter the document later on by adding on 2 more digits, making it appear like the document was signed at a different time than it actually was. In other words, the date written as 1/1/20 could later be modified to 1/1/2018.
