Free wills offered for first responders, spouses
Wills for Magnolia State First Responders is hosting an event for first responders and their spouses on Saturday, July 16, at Mississippi Law Enforcement Officer Training Academy (MLEOTA) located at 3791 Highway 468 West in Pearl. Appointments are necessary, and space is limited. The deadline to schedule an appointment is June 30, 2022.
Wills for Magnolia State First Responders is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that brings together volunteer attorneys and paralegals to provide wills and advanced healthcare directives for first responders and their spouses free of charge.
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 a basic will and advanced healthcare directive.
All first responders and their spouses must sign up for a time slot to participate and fill out an initial questionnaire. To sign up, visit WFFRMSJuly2022.eventbrite.com. For more information, contact Kristy Hogan at 601-519-0334.
