Estate planning can be done remotely

| Apr 6, 2020 | Wills & Trusts

News outlets are filled with articles about virtually every health and financial aspect of the novel coronavirus. We read a recently published article that addressed an important aspect of this public health emergency: “The reality of COVID-19 has forced many of us to contemplate our health, our mortality and our legacy.”

Indeed. Many of us have come to understand more fully in these turbulent times the necessity of a new or updated will or trust. We also see more clearly the importance of a financial power of attorney and advanced care directive in a comprehensive estate plan.

None of us have ever seen American society so completely shut down and so eerily quiet. With many people now working from home, and many more largely confined to their homes because of business shutdowns, the demand for innovative estate planning methods has soared.

Many of our regular readers know that here at Cantwell & Goldman PA, we announced plans to provide social-distancing-friendly means to provide consultations and meetings via phone and video conferencing. Our desire is, as always, to keep the community safe and healthy.

The article referenced earlier pointed out that after an initial consultation, you can exchange by email or regular mail drafts of new or updated estate planning documents. Papers can be signed and even notarized electronically so that you never leave the comfort or safety of your Brevard County home.

Contact us to schedule a consultation by phone or video conference. We can help you make the plans that will protect your family’s future and your assets.
