What is a Living Will?

A Living Will is an extremely important document for all adults to consider, and certainly requires the guidance of an Estate Planning Lawyer. A Living Will is used to document your wishes regarding end of life treatment. These are directions to your doctor and family as to what treatments you would want if you have a terminal condition or are in a permanently unconscious state.

A Living Will Protects your Loved Ones from Having to Make Difficult Decisions

If doctors have determined that you have a total loss of higher brain function and will be permanently unaware of yourself and your surroundings, would you want to be kept alive as long as possible using artificial hydration and nutrition, or would you want to be allowed to die naturally?

These are incredibly important and personal decisions. They are decisions everyone should make for themselves through a Living Will.

While not easy to consider, planning ahead and creating a Living Will can prevent your loved ones from having to make these difficult decisions themselves. Can you imagine one of your children having to decide to "pull the plug"? Or siblings fighting over that decision?

A Living Will also helps to ensure that your wishes are carried out and may prevent a long and ugly probate fight if your family does not agree on the best course of action.
