- Why should I register my important documents?
It is extremely important for your family and loved ones to know that you have taken care of your business in your lifetime and have written your personal wishes. Even people who have taken this first step fail to follow through by securing their documents and making sure the documents are found by those who care, thus ensuring that their wishes are respected. You would be surprised if you knew how many people do not know where their original will or power of attorney are located along with other important documents. Once you pass away how will anybody know that you have made a will or that your original documents are safely located unless you leave them detailed information? Please note that original signed documents are required in order to finalize an estate. Registering your important documents will give you and your loved ones peace of mind for many years to come.
- What types of documents should I register and/or store?
Original legal documents such as wills, powers of attorney, living wills, property titles and insurance policies along with other important documents that will become part of your estate.
- What is involved in finding a lost will?
One could advertise, which is costly and not always fruitful. A search could fail to turn up
the will causing an intestacy. There is no central searching mechanisms to help you. This
means that your wishes will not be carried out.
