Remote Notary Statute Passed to Facilitate Estate Planning, Other Legal Matters, During Pandemic

While we are all safe at home, a lot of things we took for granted just a few short weeks ago, have had to be sidelined until the current health situation has subsided. One of those things is the ability to go meet with your attorney, without fear of health risk. While we have been undertaking measures to safely execute estate planning documents, exercising distancing while still being in the physical presence of two witnesses and a notary, when required under Massachusetts law, a new statute eases these requirements.

Estate Planning in a Coronavirus World

At The Law Offices of Kimberly Butler Rainen, we are changing the way we work with clients during this time, because as always, the health and well-being of our clients and employees are our top priority. In this time of 'social distancing' we are working remotely, offering telephone and videoconferencing to our clients. We have also established several protocols to execute estate planning documents in a manner that is as safe as possible. While we have implements temporary changes in the way we work, it will not make drafting or changing a plan impossible.
