Many courts have reopened, but with limited hours. Thus, if you are considering a divorce, a move-away, establishing or modifying custody or support orders, now is the time to consult with an attorney so that your matter can be prepared and filed, as the courts continue to work to clear the backlog.
Now is also the time to assess your estate plan. An estate plan is more than just a Will or a Living Trust. Everyone needs to ensure that they are prepared for a sudden medical emergency. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is imperative that your estate plan, at a minimum, include a Medical Healthcare Directive; a Durable Power of Attorney; and a HIPAA Release. We remain available to assist you with all of your estate planning needs.
Please contact the Law Office of Aletha J. Smith, PC if you are in need of assistance. We are here for you.
Aletha J. Smith, Esq.
