I don't blame notary or UPS
Posted by BobbiCT of CT on 2/3/19 10:00am Msg #602792
We don't know the WHOLE story. In my lifetime all DIY from the Internet wills, deeds, etc. printed with detailed signing instructions - which DIY preparers often didn't read. Multiple questions, including "please read the instructions to me now ..." before I do these. 50% of the time, it's ".o.h... I guess I have to find 'witnesses not named in the document'" first.

Notaries notarize: Wife brings in ill, dying husband with a will, shows the signature page with signature, witness and notarization block: He signs, she witnesses and notary notarizes for $25. Meanwhile, CSR notarizing has a line of unhappy customers at the cash register.

I have sympathy for all parties. BUT if he wanted her on title to his house, why didn't he put her on title? Children from a first marriage? A DIY deed is MUCH simpler and easier. If he was well enough to go to UPS, why not to his bank to add her to his accounts "in survivorship." She would have been better off going to legal aid or AARP for a referral to start; she has a pro bono (free) attorney representing her now. My question: Why did SHE prepare her husband's will "to get his house" rather than have HIM sit with a legal aid attorney and HE explain to the attorney what he wanted. Just backwards thinking supposition. As stated, we don't know the WHOLE story.
