Everyone has had to make changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic. At Neyens Law we continue to operate during normal business hours and practice safe social distancing by offering virtual or safely distanced in-person meetings throughout the planning process.
What happens when it’s time to execute your final documents? To be effective, estate plan documents need to be signed in the presence of two witnesses and/or notarized. Therefore, we’ve implemented a new drive up and sign procedure for anyone that feels uncomfortable meeting in-person to finalize their estate plan documents. You can come to our office parking lot to drive up and sign all of your documentation in the comfort of your own car. Neyens Law will provide the two witnesses and notary, who will watch you sign from a safe distance.
Now more than ever having the right plan in place is partly for you, but it’s also for your loved ones. They are the ones who will suffer additional emotional trauma if they don’t have clarity on what you want, maybe even fighting with each other while you lay in the ICU. That’s not the legacy we want to leave for our families.
If you know someone who would benefit from learning more about implementing an estate plan, let them know we are here to help and that we offer both in-person and virtual meetings.
