Estate Planning

COVID-19 and Remote Estate Planning and Notarizations

During these unprecedented times, it is more important than ever to address your will and estate plan. It is essential for anyone of any age to at least have a Last Will and Testament, a medical and financial power of attorney, and a Living Will (Advanced Healthcare Directive). Addressing these items now can at least relieve some of the resulting stress should you or someone you love fall ill. It will allow you to ensure that you, your property, and your family will be cared for should something happen to you.

If you don’t have an estate plan yet, we would be happy to help you establish one. If you have an estate plan already, and you have questions about whether it needs to be updated, we are available to review your plan and discuss necessary changes.

You may already know that some of these important documents need to be notarized. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and thanks to the Executive Order D 2020 019 issued by Governor Polis on March 10, 2020, the requirement for personal appearance before a notary officer has been temporarily suspended. The above documents can now be notarized remotely via video conference. So rest assured, we can still assist you with your estate plan from beginning to end, even during the current stay-at-home orders.
