A Distanced Ceremony: Estate Planning Documents Execution - McDermott

Trust & Estate Controversy Virtual Forum | A Socially Distanced Ceremony: Virtual Execution of Estate Planning Documents

Overview




Remote witnessing and notarization–the ability of a witness or notary who is outside the physical presence of an individual to use two-way audio-video communication technology to witness or notarize an act–is quickly becoming the new normal for executing estate planning documents. As of June 2020, at least 44 states, either permanently by statute or temporarily by governor’s order, have allowed some form of remote witnessing and/or notarization.

This webinar will discuss the current state of remote execution ceremonies in Illinois, Florida, and New York, as well as England and the offshore jurisdictions.
