As COVID-19 remains a stagnant threat throughout California and the United States, some individuals are panicking about their estate planning needs. For example, at-risk individuals are now facing a difficult time planning their next steps. Further, families who have lost loved ones without a will are now facing probate delays. Luckily, there are options during this unprecedented time for executors to administer their loved ones’ estates. Here’s how California probate law firms and registered legal document assistants are helping clients with legal concerns during COVID-19.
Teleconference and E-Filing: How Law Firms Are Helping
Law firms around the state of California are adapting to keep clients and employees as safe as possible. For example, most firms are offering teleconferencing and avoiding in-person meetings whenever possible. This allows clients to continue their probate cases without putting themselves or others at risk. In fact, many law firms are even conducting legal document signing in separate rooms via Zoom calls.
Additionally, firms are working with clients to e-file with county courts as mandated. For instance, the Santa Barbara County Superior Court resumed probate matters on May 21, 2020. However, the court has limited litigation on these matters to telephone and video conference only. As a result, California law firms are working closely with clients to complete all probate matters according to the relevant court’s current guidelines.
