Should I Go to the Internet for Legal Documents?
USF Health Byrd Alzheimer’s Institute’s Eileen Poiley has helped Caregivers for over 30 years. She speaks with Attorney Michelangelo Mortellaro with Mortellaro Law to walk through what documents your loved one needs and the importance of getting them prepared sooner rather than later.
It is never a good idea to draft your own documents. Every state is different. Michelangelo has seen clients that have printed a document that a friend shared with them and if it isn’t from the state that you are living in it is not going to work. Not all documents are created equal and there are many places to get legal documents for a very reasonable price. Mortellaro Law shares that you want to make sure that your documents have the legal terminology that is necessary in the state you live in.
Once someone loses capacity and can no longer sign new documents, they are stuck with what they have.
