Imagine you are on the road, your rig breaks down, and you fork over hundreds if not thousands of dollars on a repair. You get back on the road, you’ve driven another couple of hundred miles, and the problem is back again. What do you do? More often than not, you’re then faced with another costly repair. Did you just get scammed by a repair shop that is now hours away from where you are? What do you do?
Now, imagine you’re driving late at night, going along at the speed limit, and all of a sudden you see the dreaded red and blue flashing lights behind you. You pull over and to your surprise, the officer asks you to step out of the vehicle and proceeds to tell you that you are under arrest for an outstanding warrant. You’re not a criminal. Come to find out, you’ve become a victim of identity theft and someone has been committing crimes under your name. How do you clear your name? What can you possibly say to the officer to convince them that “it wasn’t me!”?
Unfortunately, these types of circumstances happen all too often. Peace of mind is hard to come by for anyone these days but raising a traveling family comes with even more worries on a daily basis.
Becoming a Fulltime Family and committing to a life of travel comes with its own road bumps. And, after you’ve been out there a while, you’re bound to encounter some detours—both literally and figuratively. Some of the longer detours…and even some of the quick ones…might challenge you, your family, your well-being, financial situation, employment status, and a whole lot more.
Why would my Full-Time Family need a legal service plan?
Dreamers and Active Planners
Are you daydreaming of an escape? Or are you in the thick of determining exactly how you’ll make a living on the road? Maybe, in the beginning, a few dreamy Instagram photos made the transition seem simple, but you’re now beginning to discover how complicated the transition can be.
- You are renting or selling your sticks and bricks or breaking your lease.
- You are buying, financing or selling a vehicle, RV or 5th wheel.
- You want to learn more about how travel could benefit or negatively affect your tax status.
- You are trying to navigate homeschool laws, which vary from one state to the next and are constantly changing.
- You want to review/correct your credit history before you get serious about hitting the road.
- You don’t understand your insurance policies, and how they could be impacted by a life on the road.
- You don’t have an up-to-date Will; know the difference between a Trust and a Will, or know if you need one or both before going out on the road.
