Protections afforded by having Estate documents in place in the midst of the Covid-19 virus crisis

In this unprecedented time of uncertainty you can rely upon the lawyers at Brennan Lenehan to provide you with sound advice so that you and your loved ones are protected in the event Covid-19 strikes. We have set up our infrastructure so we can use modern technology in order to meet with you remotely to prepare your estate plan. Having an estate plan in place is particularly important for those who are first responders such as health care workers, police, fire, to name a few. Why should you have an estate plan? Here are some of the benefits and other important information you need to know:

  1. If you become ill with the Corona virus, you need to concentrate your efforts on getting better. The last thing you want to do is worry about is what will happen to your spouse, loved ones or children. A Last Will and Testament will identify important issues like who will have guardianship over your minor children and what will happen to your assets upon your demise.
  2. If you become too sick to handle your financial affairs, having a Durable Power of Attorney will allow for you to assign another to handle your financial affairs, such as signing and depositing paychecks, paying bills, etc. during your convalescence.
  3. You may find yourself in the hospital and unable to make medical decisions for yourself. A Health Care Directive can be invoked to allow for another to make those decisions for you.
  4. Remember, a Last Will and Testament and all other Estate documents must be signed by you in the presence of witnesses and notarized in order for them to be legal in the State of New Hampshire.
