April Get Your Act Together Event!

Do you and your partner have a will? Power of attorney? Living will? Maybe you have these documents set up, but have never managed to coordinate a time when you can both get to a notary with witnesses AND find childcare for your kids…

I’ve got a solution for you: Get Your Act Together family-friendly signing event

I’m coordinating a notary signing event for young families at the Pittsburgh Toy Lending Library. Parents can come with documents prepared, our kids can play safely in the space, and we can all serve as one another’s witnesses while a team of mobile notaries stamps our documents.

Here are the details:

April 28 from 6:00-8:30pm

Pittsburgh Toy Lending Library, 5401 Centre Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15232

Cost: $31.20 per adult**

This price includes space rental fees, notary travel fees, 3 notary stamps per adult, and other costs associated with planning the event.

Guests must come to the event with their documents completed. We will not have lawyers or legal advisors present. This event is intended to help families get documents in place to communicate their wishes should tragedy strike.

Not sure where to start with these documents? Rocket Lawyer and Suze Orman have great templates for a Last Will, Durable Power of Attorney, and Living Will. (Rocket Lawyer is doing a free “make a will month” for April!)

**Please feel free to bring your children!

Any additional questions? Leave a comment and I’ll be sure to answer them as best I can.

SOLD OUT!! Please consider our May event.

    Glad to hear this, thanks, Katy! I just tried to sign up and when it redirected to paypal, it was just the generic paypal page asking who
    I wanted to send money to. Is there a better link, or if not, whose name/email should I input for the paypal payment?

    Oh thank you for this feedback, Deadra! Let me investigate the code for my button on the site right away!

    Just signed up for the April PTLL date, but I wasn’t sure whether it was indicated anywhere that I signed up for this date. Thanks for arranging this! Just the kick in the pants we needed.

    Wonderful, Laura! Right now, April is the only registration open, so I’ll be able to tell which month people sign up for :)

  6. Diane Walter Says:

    I just signed up for 2 slots thinking it was for the May event. I’m a dork. Possible to move my signups to May? We won’t have our shit together for this Monday. :)

  7. katy Says:

    No problem, Diane! I will move you to May!

  8. Laura Says:

    When it says “per adult” does my husband have to be there, too? Or can we fill out the paperwork together and then I can bring it by myself?

  9. katy Says:

    Hi Laura–you can get your own documents signed and notarized, but your husband would have to be present to sign his own documents.

    Got it. Thank you!
