For Chester County residents in need of assistance from the county’s Register of Wills office, county employees are now traveling to meet citizens.
Register of Wills Terri Clark instituted the policy to better serve the public. “This service was not previously offered,” Clark said. “So far we have served several clients in the areas of Unionville, West Chester, Pottstown and Coatesville.”
The Chester County Register of Wills office is sending representatives to hospices, nursing facilities, hospitals, and private homes to execute legal documents pertaining to marriage licenses and notarizing power-of-attorneys for those in their last stages of life or not ambulatory.
“We are now offering this service for those with severe health problems who need assistance in completing these legal documents,” said Clark. “Our staff will go on the road to help our needy residents.”
Clark said marriage license applications have been serviced by the new program as have notarizing power of attorney documents.
