Our world has changed whether we were ready for it or not. Coronavirus (you might also see it called Covid-19) has created urgency in our financial and estate planning that may not had existed before the virus. Like you, we are hopeful the virus will go away soon and leave us alone. But we (especially the sick and elderly) must consider what can happen if the virus strikes us.
Most of us think we have plenty of time to do our Last Will and Testament—until we don’t. If you are worried that you or a loved one is not adequately prepared for the onset of the virus and the estate problems that may be created by your or a loved-one’s death, Brown Weimer is offering our emergency Last Will and Testament services.
We offer immediate telephone and video-conferencing to answer questions, give advice, and take the information and guidance that will allow us to prepare a legally enforceable Last Will and Testament. After we gather the needed information, we will draft the Will and travel to you to have the Will executed. That means we will travel to your home, hospital, assisted living-facility, or nursing home so that you may finalize your last Will and Testament and enjoy the peace of mind that such an action brings.
A Will is essential if you want control over how you leave your property at death. If you don’t have a Will, Louisiana state law determines who gets your estate, not you. Also, with a Will you can designate who you want to execute your wishes by designation of an executor. You can also ensure, by designating in the Will for your executor to be independent (a technical legal term), that there is minimal court involvement in the probate process. This will minimize the attorney and court fees for your estate and ensure your estate can be rapidly completed.
Contact us at Brown Weimer now to start the process. You can also call (504) 561-8700.
We offer a reasonable flat fee for this service.
