Online Estate Planning During COVID-19 Pandemic from Start to Finish

A guide to online estate planning during COVID-19

As you have probably heard by now, keeping physical distance between us is crucial to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Call or email McDonald Law Firm to find out how we can help you complete your online estate planning during COVID-19, without taking a single step outside the safe confines of your home.

Online Estate Planning During COVID-19: Challenges & Solutions

Formerly, Maryland and the District of Columbia required that important legal documents (such as Wills and Powers of Attorney) must be signed in person and in the presence of witnesses. However, during the course of this pandemic, we have been doing all we can to follow that law while abiding by the social-distancing requirements to meet the needs of our clients. But significant limitations remain to accomplish in-person signing while still protecting our Clients’ health.

Recently, however, the Governor of Maryland signed an Executive Order authorizing remote notarization of documents and the remote signing and witnessing of estate planning documents. Similarly, the District of Columbia enacted a law authorizing remote signing and witnessing of estate planning documents. Now, McDonald Law Firm can offer clients in Maryland and the District of Columbia the entire estate-planning process, start to finish, all completed while you stay safe at home and connected with us by internet instead.

Please consider that especially under the current public health circumstances, it would be most wise to get your plan done. You will have made sure that trusted people can step in for you, to take care of bills and health-care decisions if you’re unable to. At the same time, you will have taken care of your heirs, to protect your family’s legacy as smoothly as possible when the time comes.

How quickly things change. Now, online estate planning during COVID-19 can be accomplished start to finish, and you can have the peace-of-mind knowing that you’re not exposing yourself and love once to any unnecessary health risk. At the same time, you will know that a trusted person can pick up the reins for you, so you or your loved ones get the care you need, and you will know that your estate legacy will be preserved and protected.
