Wills for Magnolia State First Responders is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that brings together volunteer Attorneys and Paralegals to prepare estate planning documents for First Responders and their Spouses FREE of charge.
Their next event will be held Saturday, October 23, 2021, at MS Sports Hall of Fame and Museum located at 1152 Lakeland Drive, Jackson, MS 39216, from 10:00am – 3:00pm. Appointments are necessary and space is limited! The deadline to schedule an appointment is October 15, 2021. To sign up, First Responders will need to contact Kristy Hogan at firstname.lastname@example.org or (601) 519-0334.
SIGN-UP – All First Responders and their Spouses MUST sign up for a time slot to participate and fill out an initial questionnaire. To sign up please contact Kristy Hogan at email@example.com or (601) 519-0334.
THE EVENT – First Responders and their Spouses will check in at their allotted time where they will meet with a Paralegal to go over their initial questionnaire. Documents will then be drafted onsite by a Paralegal and reviewed by an Attorney. The Attorney will then meet with each First Responder and Spouse privately to go over their documents. All documents are signed and notarized onsite.
Each First Responder and Spouse will receive their original documents. NO COPIES ARE RETAINED BY WFFRMS.
These documents include:
Basic Will – A basic Will allows you to designate how you want your assets distributed, to name an Executor who will be responsible for carrying out your wishes, and to designate a guardian(s) for your minor children (if applicable). These basic Wills do not provide a trust for minor children or other heirs.
Advanced Healthcare Directive – An Advanced Healthcare Directive allows you to designate an individual to make medical decisions on your behalf in the event you are unable. It may also document your wish to direct medical treatment in more specific ways, such as your choice regarding which life sustaining treatments be withheld/withdrawn in the event you are unable to make your own medical decisions.
This service is provided to all First Responders and their Spouses completely FREE OF CHARGE.
