Estate Planning Notary Stamp

Due to the CODIV-19 pandemic, Governor Abbott recently issued a temporary order allowing certain estate planning documents to be notarized by videoconference.

The list of estate planning documents include the following:

  • Last Will and Testaments,
  • Durable Powers of Attorney (Aka Financial Power of Attorney),
  • Medical Powers of Attorney,
  • Directive to Physicians, and
  • Oaths of Executors, Administrators and Guardians.

In order to have these documents notarized via videoconference, the signer must provide proof of identity and send a copy of the signed document to the notary. The notary must then sign the document and send back to the signer, making it legal.

Do you need to create or review your estate planning documents? Now is the time!
