Frequently Asked Questions
Who should attend the Powers of Attorney workshop?
Our workshops are best for Arizona residents who want to plan for incapacity and protect themselves from the court proceedings of Conservatorship and Guardianship.
What documents will I complete at the Workshop?
You will get a attorney-drafted Powers of Attorney, including:
- Financial Power of Attorney
- Health Care Power of Attorney
- Living Will
- Mental Health Care Power of Attorney
- HIPAA Waiver
Are there any other documents I will receive at the Workshop?
Yes, you will also get the following extra documents that you can execute on your own included in the fee:
- Funeral and Burial Wishes
- Vehicle Beneficiaries
- Vital Information Organizer
What are Financial, Health Care, and Mental Health Powers of Attorney?
These Powers of Attorney are valid during your lifetime and help you prepare for incapacity. They are powerful legal documents that allow you to identify the people you want making health care decisions for you when you cannot advocate for yourself. Also, you can identify the people you want helping you with your finances when you need help. With valid, updated Powers of Attorney, your trusted agents will step in to implement your wishes rather than the Court stepping in to appoint a Conservator and Guardian for you.
What if I already have Powers of Attorney, but I want to update my agents and wishes?
This is the perfect workshop for you. Executing new Powers of Attorney will revoke and replace your outdated ones.
What is the pre-workshop procedure?
Once you are registered, we will send you a few questions regarding who you want to list as your agents to help you with Medical and Financial decisions. We are also happy to schedule a short call with our attorney so we can help you with those decisions and answer any questions.
How many attendees will be at the workshop?
We keep attendance limited to under 7 attendees so our attorney can answer questions and walk everyone through the signing process. It also allows everyone to spread out.
What precautions are you taking for COVID-19?
Our conference rooms have been thoroughly cleaned between users. We will have hand sanitizer available and masks are required for anyone who is not vaccinated.
Will there be food?
Yes. We will provide some snacks. You are welcome to bring any other food and closed-lid drinks.
Do I need to bring my spouse?
No. You can execute your own Powers of Attorney identifying anyone you choose to act as your agent(s). Your spouse does not have to sign any documents.
What do I need to bring to the workshop?
Only your AZ driver’s license or other government-issued form of id.
When and how do I pay?
We prefer cash or check made out to “Same Day Wills” for payment. You will pay at the workshop.
Can I attend with a family member, but not execute my own documents?
Probably. It is free to attend with a family member if you are there supporting that person. However, our attorney will have a conversation with you prior to the workshop to assess whether there are any issues with familial controversy, capacity, and undue influence.
What if I cannot make it to the workshop?
Please call us at 602-492-1848 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to reschedule at least 48 hours in advance. If you do not give us 48 hours, we will charge a $50 fee for the work already completed.
