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.
