March 25, 2020
In light of Governor Whitmer’s executive order 2020-21 (COVID-19) to stay at home, our offices are closed and we will not be conducting routine in-person meetings or workshops through April 13.
However, we want to reassure you that the Carrier Law team is still here to support you. During these challenging times, we still have the capability to draft documents, and have them properly witnessed and notarized.
We are working remotely with the following options available to provide continuous service.
Meet with us via phone call or video conference.
If you have an upcoming meeting at one of our offices, you will be notified with details for meeting via phone or video conference. If you would like to schedule a new appointment, respond to this email or call us at (800) 317-2812.
Create or update legal documents like Powers of Attorney.
Now more than ever, it’s important to have the proper medical and financial powers in place. These documents ensure that you can act on behalf of a loved one, and that a loved one can act on behalf of you. If these are not in place in the event of an emergency, a court order is required to give authorization, and the courts are currently trying to limit access due to COVID-19. If you would like to create or update powers of attorney, call us at (800) 317-2812 or respond to this email or to schedule a phone or video conference.
Sign and notarize documents in a safe, controlled environment.
Documents like powers of attorney are not legally-binding until they are signed, witnessed, and notarized. We have temporarily implemented alternative measures that will allow you to do this in a safe, controlled environment. These signings will be arranged on a need basis by appointment.
View our LifePlan workshop via video recording.
If you were scheduled to attend a LifePlan workshop, you can view the material via video recording. Since it is a recording, it can be viewed at any time. You do not need to watch it at the time of your scheduled workshop. You will need a computer or mobile device with speakers and internet connection. Below is a link to access the webinar:
We are here to help you get through this. We will navigate the unknowns together and ensure you are legally secure. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
