A Living Will is a critical part of estate planning that allows you to dictate your health care wishes should you become incapacitated. At Aguila Law, we provide legal advice and guidance in crafting a comprehensive Living Will that ensures your wishes are respected.
Understanding the Living Will
A Living Will is a legal document that expresses your desires concerning life-prolonging medical treatments and interventions if you become unable to communicate your decisions. It can provide essential guidance for your loved ones and medical professionals in times of crisis.
The Importance of a Living Will
Without a Living Will, the responsibility of making life-altering health care decisions falls on your loved ones, which can be a difficult and emotional task. By creating a Living Will, you can alleviate this burden and ensure your healthcare preferences are followed.
Crafting Your Living Will
Drafting a Living Will involves careful consideration of your values, beliefs, and health care preferences. At Aguila Law, we work with you to create a Living Will that accurately reflects your wishes and adheres to legal requirements.
Health Care Surrogate
Within your Living Will, you can designate a health care surrogate – someone who is authorized to make health care decisions on your behalf should you become unable to do so. We offer guidance in selecting a trusted individual who can act as your health care surrogate.
Reviewing and Updating Your Living Will
Your health care wishes may change over time. It’s essential to review and, if necessary, update your Living Will to reflect these changes. We provide ongoing support to ensure your Living Will remains up-to-date and reflective of your current wishes.
Navigating Complex Medical Decisions
Deciding on your health care preferences can be complicated and emotionally challenging. Our experienced team is here to help you navigate complex medical decisions and ensure they are correctly represented in your Living Will.
Integrating Your Living Will into Your Estate Plan
