Can I execute my electronic will if I’m in a nursing home or an assisted living facility?

Unfortunately, no.

Although we completely understand that persons in nursing homes and assisted living facilities would benefit from remote online notarization, Florida law prohibits the online notarization of testamentary documents with remote witnesses by those considered to be, “vulnerable adults”.  One of the definitions of a vulnerable adult is a person who requires assistance with their day-to-day care.

We would also like to make clear that the discretion of our online notaries public is final in deciding whether or not to continue with an online notarization of a testamentary document.
