Using DocuBank to Store Important Legal Documents

DocuBank is yours use as you wish. It was created for the particular purpose of storing healthcare proxies for use in medical emergencies, but I've worked with them for many years and they're happy to store any documents that you think would be useful to store there.
For instance, if you feel that that is a good place to have documents to be sure that your loved ones know what documents you have, you know when the time comes, then you can store any documents there that you like. In my opinion the documents that are really appropriately stored there are the ones that it's a good idea to store there would be the healthcare proxy and the power of attorney, because those are the ones that may be needed in an emergency situation.
Now, I would add to that list if you are the parents of or the guardian of young children, and there are documents pertaining to their care such as the nomination of a guardian to look after your children if you're ever incapacitated, that's another document that would be needed in emergency situation and another one that would be suitable for storage in DocuBank.
