Connect to Our Experienced Coaches

Our experienced coaches are available by phone and/or online to provide guidance and education when creating your online estate planning documents. They will not only walk you through each step, but also explain what the documents are, how to create them, how they work, and how to use them. 

The coaches can also help you with:

  • Family Support – If you are caring for an aging parent or a loved one, they should have their own individual estate plan. Our coaches can help you create their plan and will go over with you what information is needed, what each document is, and how to organize them. If your parents or loved ones do not have an estate plan in place, you could end up dealing with a costly and lengthy legal mess.
  • Notarizing Documents – To make your estate plan valid, many of the documents must be notarized. Each state has different regulations for how documents are witnessed and signed. Gentreo’s expert coaches can help you find a notary in your state. Our partnership with eNotaryLog can help get your documents notarized online, if your state allows Remote Online Notarization.

  • Preparing Your Family for an Emergency – You never know when a health emergency or a death will occur. Having the right documents at the ready will put the right people in charge and give them the legal authority to make critical decisions when a crisis hits. Our coaches will explain what documents you should consider and why.
