April 15, 2020During state of emergency, Maryland to permit virtual witnessing of wills and other estate documents
On April 10, 2020, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan issued two executive orders that will now permit remote notarizations (Order No. 20-03-30-04: https://sos.maryland.gov/Documents/EOAuthorizingRemoteNotarization.pdf) and the electronic witnessing of wills and other estate-related documents (Order No. 20-04-10-01: https://governor.maryland.gov/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Remote-Witnessing-4.10.20.pdf), thereby suspending certain in-person witnessing requirements while the coronavirus state of emergency remains in effect. This is a momentous development that will greatly facilitate the execution of these critical documents in such uncertain times.
