Estate Planning in the Time of COVID-19
Preparing and properly executing estate planning documents requires much care and consideration under “normal” circumstances. The COVID-19 pandemic, with its attendant shelter-at-home orders and social distancing guidelines, has made the estate planning process a logistically complicated necessity. Under the California Probate Code, the execution of estate planning documents requires a combination of notarization and witnessing. How can this be accomplished when non‑essential businesses are closed or working off‑site, and people are increasingly cautious of interactions outside of their homes? The Trusts & Estates department at MSK is prepared to assist you through the preparation and execution of your estate planning documents, allowing you peace of mind in these uncertain and difficult times.
