Estate Planning During COVID-19 Pandemic (Easier Than You Think)

We are in unique and challenging times. We are social distancing, staying at home and adjusting to abnormal working and personal conditions. As we do our best to stay healthy and help keep others healthy, many people are also giving renewed consideration to having a proper estate planning in place. Indeed, a Will, General Power of Attorney, Advance Health Care Directive and Health Care Power of Attorney (and in many cases, a Revocable Trust) are important to have in place.  These documents plan for circumstances of incapacity or death and are important in any environment—but for many, these feel a bit more pressing right now. Fortunately, estate planning can be done quick and seamlessly during this time. In fact, in many instances, we can prepare and even have signed all documents without you needing to leave your home. Video conferencing and electronic notarization (recently authorized by executive order in Missouri) offer reliable and legally enforceable methods to get the right documents in place while staying healthy and comfortable. We offer free initial consultations by phone (and by video conference) and are committed to expedite estate planning documents to ensure your peace of mind and legal protection.
