The Court remains open for telephonic hearings and filing by mail and electronically. Phinney Estate Law continues our work on probates providing support to estate executors and administrators. We know this is a stressful time for everyone, but particularly those who have recently lost loved ones. The fact that so many government services are delayed or only operating remotely has also made this process more complex for people to navigate without help. We are honored to help guide our clients through the probate process with the Court and make the process of wrapping up an estate a little easier. Phinney Estate Law offers a free half hour consultation on the probate process as well by phone, Zoom or FaceTime.
Sometimes in the legal process in person signings are necessary. Our office is taking every precaution to keep ourselves and our clients healthy and well. We wipe down all pens with bleach prior to signings and only have one person signing at the table at a time while our notaries maintain social distance. Our staff wear masks and thoroughly wash their hands both before and after signings. We then ask that our clients stand in a designated location for their safety and ours as documents are witnessed and notarized. All doorknobs and handles are sanitized both before and after signings.
For documents that only need to be notarized, not witnessed our office can arrange remote notary services for small fee. Folks wanting this extra level of protection should let us know so we can let you know if this would be possible for your case.
If you’re interested in a free half hour consultation with Phinney Estate Law on estate planning or probate call 206-459-1908. We’ll look forward to hearing from you.
