What is a living will? Should I have one?
By



A Living Will gives instructions to your family and physicians on whether you wish to be medically treated if you are ever in a physical condition in which there is no hope of recovering. It allows you to control decisions relating to your own medical care, including the decision to have life-sustaining procedures withheld or withdrawn in a situation in which you might be diagnosed as having a terminal and irreversible condition. The law is very specific as to the form and contents required of a valid living will. It is wise to consult an attorney to ensure that your living will is proper. Whether you should have a living will is a very personal decision and you may wish to discuss this decision with your physician and an attorney.

The price range of this legal document gores from $500-$1500. Yes, there are places online where you can probably do it yourself for free, but this is a serious document and as mentioned above the laws are very specific as to the form and contents required.

Make sure you contact an affordable experienced attorney before attempting to put this document in place.
