U.S. Living Wills
A Living Will is not to be confused with a Last Will and Testament. A Living Will is active when you are still alive, and allows you to express the kind of life sustaining treatment you wish to receive if you are in an irreversible, terminal condition or a Persistent Vegetative State. This is commonly referred to as your desire to "pull the plug".
Together with a Power of Attorney and Last Will and Testament, your Living Will is part of what most people regard as a complete set of estate planning documents.
Each State has its own laws covering your rights to prepare Advance Directives, and in some States these laws are rapidly changing.
A Living Will can be created for all U.S. States, excluding Louisiana, by an online service at www.USLegalWills.com.
