New Haven, CT (April 6, 2020). In these scary times of the coronavirus, Fournier Legal Services is offering to provide free health care proxies and living will advance directives to all Connecticut residents until the end of May.
The entire process may be done remotely, without the need for an in-person visit. Residents may start the process by visiting the firm’s website at www.jefegal.com.
Your health care documents name someone to make medical and life care decisions for you when you are unable to do so yourself and tells others what your personal choices are about end-of-life medical treatment.
“We believe that everyone should have this important legal document in place before they need it” says the firm’s founder, Joseph E. Fournier. “Because so many residents have not yet completed these advance directives, we want to help the communities we serve and that support us by offering this service free of cost and without the need to meet in-person.”
“Once you provide the information we need online, we will draft the document and email it to you. You may then print out the form, and sign it in the presence of two witnesses,” adds Amanda Puccino-Perricone, the firm’s Sr. Paralegal in charge of Estate Planning.
The firm encourages those signing documents in the presence of required witnesses to follow CDC guidelines to limit exposure to illness.
