Create A Living Will To Protect Your Rights And Wishes
In most cases, you have full control over your own medical care. But when you’re no longer able to express your own wishes, the situation can become very unclear. A living will, also called a directive, lets you clearly state your wishes for end-of-life medical care. Let an experienced estate attorney at Duncan Legal, PC, help you create your living will today. Duncan Legal, PC, is located in Centennial, Colorado, and practices estate planning laws and procedures. As an estate planning attorney, I will help you navigate the living will process.
Understand The Facts About Your Living Will
Living wills can provide direction and reduce ambiguity during a difficult time, by spelling out your wishes on the use of feeding tubes, resuscitation and other life-prolonging procedures. In order to understand more about estate planning, consider these facts:
- Living will rules vary from state to state.
- Living wills must be legal documents, not simply verbal or even written directives.
- You can change your living will at any time.
- You can draft your living will once you turn 18.
I will walk you through the state-specific rules concerning your living will and help you define your wishes. Contact Duncan Legal, PC, by calling 303-222-7021 today or emailing me to speak with an experienced estate planning attorney.
