In my 13 years as a notary, I’ve found that most people wait until it’s absolutely necessary (or almost too late) to get their loved ones to sign legal paperwork. Day after day I go to hospitals and nursing homes to notarize wills and power of attorney documents. In most cases, the people are just now thinking about these necessary documents. With these types of documents it seems to be the old……”out of sight, out of mind” mentality. Nobody wants to think about actually needing one of these documents, but it is a fact of life.
