The reality of COVID-19 has forced many individuals to address the “what if” scenarios that were previously unthinkable, or at least the situations that no one ever wants to talk about or deal with.
Most of us have fortunately never dealt with anything like this – extended periods of isolation at home and long-term social distancing – in our lives.
Here are a few things you should know:
- Most estate planning work can be done at home.You may not be able to physically meet with the Law Office of Amanda D. Berger, APC, but you can still create, update or finalize your estate plan. The staff at Onyx Law Office is working remotely, and we are available via email and telephone to advise you. Documents can be drafted and emailed to you for review.
- Use this time to get your estate planning house in order.Chances are you now have the time to think through the issues you have placed on the back burner for so long. Take advantage of the time to address your estate planning while these issues are foremost in your mind.
- There are many options for signing your estate planning document. Onyx Law Office is approaching estate planning signings on a case by case basis. We have a mobile notary available who is willing to meet at the office to sign any estate planning documents while practicing social distancing, and wearing gloves and masks, if warranted.
- Meeting with Onyx Law Office is not always needed for document signing. In certain circumstances, you may be able to sign documents on your own. We can forward you instructions on how to have an out of office signing. You may need witnesses who can be friends or neighbors who are practicing social distancing while watching you sign the documents.
