A team of legal professionals will visit Billings on June 25 to help people 60 and older complete estate planning documents at no charge.
Volunteer attorneys and paralegals will, free of cost, help eligible people who meet financial requirements to complete wills, medical powers of attorney, financial powers of attorney, declarations of homestead, beneficiary deeds and living wills.
According to a news release on the event, only about 45 percent of Americans have completed wills. Many also lack durable power of attorney documents appointing the person they want to make medical or financial decisions for them should they be unable to do so themselves.
Clinic participants may complete these and other estate planning documents. Participants will leave with notarized documents, copies of original documents and instructions about what to do with each.
The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 25 at First Presbyterian Church, 2420 13th St. W. Space is limited, and advance registration is required by June 12. Attendance is required at a pre-clinic meeting at 1 p.m. June 9 at the Adult Resource Alliance, 1505 Avenue D.
