New York Extends Remote Notarization and Document Execution to October 4, 2020
By Executive Order 202.60 issued September 4, 2020, New York’s remote notarization and document execution procedures are extended through October 4, 2020.
As has been done in previous months during the pandemic, Executive Order 202.60 was issued on the date the previous Executive Order (EO 202.55) was set to expire. This extension, while anticipated, is still welcome news for New Yorkers who continue to deal with the practical effects of the public health emergency. Governor Cuomo’s initial Executive Orders 202.7 (audio-video notarization) and 202.14 (audio-video witnessing of estate planning documents) have now been extended several times since the beginning of the pandemic, and are likely to be extended beyond October 4, 2020.
If you have questions about the current state of remote document execution, or about other estate planning issues, please contact Barbara Shiers, Linda Wank, Adam Osterweil or any other member of the Frankfurt Kurnit Estate Planning & Administration Group.
