Don’t Wait to Sign Your Will: Update On Indiana COVID-19 Signing Rules

Posted by April Grunden | Jun 24, 2020

On March 31, 2020, the Indiana Supreme Court ordered the temporary authorization for virtual witnessing of a will by temporarily removing the requirement that the signor be in the presence of the witness, as well as remote notarization procedures.  This has allowed our office to proceed with virtual signings so our clients may complete their planning.

The order contained the caveat that any wills signed under this order would need to be re-signed with the witnesses in person within 90 days of the end of the Governor's declared State of Emergency.  However, on May 29, 2020, the Court issued an order extending the time period within which the virtually signed wills must be re-signed in person to January 1, 2021.

Hopefully, the transition to virtual capabilities through the Court's COVID-19 orders will result in some of these provisions becoming permanent.  Until then, give us a call and we will coordinate your estate planning under current guidelines and keep you up to date.

April Grunden

I am the anti-attorney.  I buck the system at every turn because I believe the system is broken.  I have seen the old way of dictating to families and business owners how their plans should work.  I've seen how attorneys run roughshod over clients. Enough is enough. I want to protect my family. ...

We’re Different and Different Is Good.

At GLO we’re reviving the lost art of listening. It’s your planning, not ours. You tell us how you want to take care of your family and business. We will listen and put everything in place.
