We Can Virtually Help You With Your Estate Plan
As you have probably heard by now, keeping physical distance between us is crucial to stop this virus. Call or email us to find out how we can help you complete your estate plan without taking a single step outside your safe home.
Formerly, most states required that important legal documents must be signed in person. During the course of this epidemic, then, we have been doing all we can to follow that law, to get your documents signed in person and still protect your health.
Recently, however, an increasing number of governors have issued emergency orders to change that law. Ask us whether our state is one of those that has suspended the requirements for in-person signing. If so, we can offer you the entire estate-planning process, start to finish, all completed while you stay safe at home and connected with us by internet instead.
Please consider that especially under these circumstances, it would be most wise to get your plan done. You will have made sure that trusted people can step in for you, to take care of bills and health-care decisions if you become unable. At the same time, you will have taken care of your heirs, to protect your family’s legacy as smoothly as possible when the time comes.
How quickly things change. It may be that now we can do it all by internet, to get you to the peace of mind that doesn’t change. You will know that a trusted person can pick up the reins for you, so you or your loved ones get the care you need, and you will know that your estate legacy will be preserved and protected.
Call or email us to see whether we can get the whole process done using video. And if you are outside of our service area, please contact an experienced Elder Law Attorney (preferably one that is Board Certified in Elder Law) to assist you.
