notarized a Power of Attorney for an elderly client in a nursing
facility. She needed to transfer the responsibility of selling her
home to her daughter while she convalesced. In their case, as in so
many, she didn't have any acceptable form of identification and her
relatives lived in another state, so she had no one available to
act as credible witnesses.
We were still able to get her document
notarized, but it's a good reminder to anyone who is getting up in
years, as well as children of older parents, to keep at least one
form of qualifying I.D.(State ID, Passport or Drivers License)
current. In the event that documents need to be signed on short
notice, keeping identification current can make a potentially
stressful situation flow much more smoothly.
