GenPRIDE hosts Signing Party for Wills & Other Legal Documents Feb. 12

There are many legal documents that are literally matters of life and death. Some cover the unexpected situation in life if you or a loved one were to become unconscious or incapacitated. These documents can spell out who should manage your health care, your finances, your children, or your pets if you can't take care of such matters yourself. Some legal documents control what happens when you die: what services, ceremonies, and arrangements should be made, how any money or property you leave behind gets distributed, and who will make those decisions for you after you're gone. These legal documents are especially important for LGBTQ people, who may face discrimination in healthcare or legal challenges from members of their family of origin.

These crucial legal documents take many forms - Wills, Powers of Attorney, Health Care Directives, and more - but they all have one thing in common: to take effect and be legally binding, you need to date and sign them in the presence of witnesses or a Notary Public. Some documents require both witnesses and a Notary Public to certify your signature. Plus, whenever you change or update the document, you have to again date and sign the new version, in the same manner as before. Arranging this signing ceremony can be a major stumbling block to putting your current legal documents into effect.

Are you creating or updating a Will, Power of Attorney, Health Care Directive, or another legal document that needs witnessing or notarizing? Come to a free, fun Signing Party for Legal Documents at Seattle's GenPRIDE Center, offered in partnership with the Lavender Rights Project! Bring your photo ID and your legal documents as ready-to-sign, printed copies. We'll have a Notary Public in attendance and can witness each other's signing of our documents, so you can leave the party with all your documents signed and dated, legal and official.

Signing Party for Wills & Other Legal Documents

February 12, 6:00 - 7:30 pm

GenPRIDE Center
401 Broadway E Suite 223
(above Broadway QFC)
Seattle, WA 98102
(2nd floor, south of gym)

Here are some common questions and answers about this event:


Q. Is there any fee required for the notarizing of my document? Do I have to be a member of GenPRIDE?

A. No. This event is totally free and open to the public.

Q. What should I bring to this signing party?

A. Bring your photo ID and printed copies of all the legal documents you want to sign and have witnessed or notarized.

Q. I don't have a printer at home. Can you print out my document if I bring it as a digital file on a USB drive or save it to the Internet?

A. It's best if you bring printed copies of the documents you want to sign, so that you know they are printed & formatted correctly and are ready-to-sign. If you need help getting documents printed, please contact us several days in advance and see if we can print them out for you.

Q. I need some advice on what to include in my legal document, before I sign it.

A. This event is focused exclusively on dating and signing documents that are ready-to-sign. There are many resources, both local and online, that can help you draw up or update your Will, Health Care Directive, or another legal document so that it clearly states your wishes in the appropriate format for Washington State. The Public Library has many resources available. You could also contact the Lavender Rights Project (https://www.lavenderrightsproject.org/ or (206) 639-7955) for legal assistance and advice, especially on legal issues important to LGBTQ people and their loved ones.

Q. Do I have to arrive right at 6:00 pm? Do I have to make an advance reservation?

A. This is a fun, drop-in event, so come by anytime between 6:00 and 7:30 pm. The longer you stay, the more document signings you'll be able to witness for others. There will be light snacks & refreshments available. An RSVP is welcome, but not required, at http://bit.ly/gp-signingparty.
