Living Will

living will in Arizona is a legal document.  A living will lets you specify your healthcare preferences in case you’re ever unable to communicate your wishes.  Typically, your living will doesn’t go into effect unless you become incapacitated.  Our Arizona Will Attorneys and Gilbert Estate Planning Lawyers can assist you in creating a living will that will help to assure that your healthcare wishes are met.  Know the differences between an Arizona Living Will and a Last Will and Testament.

LIVING WILLS IN ARIZONA

Your living will, which is an advanced health care directive, operates far differently than your will. Your last will and testament is used after you pass away, while a living will is used while you are still alive. Instead of listing who you would like to receive your possessions, move your estate through probate, and take care of your minor children, a living will is used to help your family members and doctors know which medical treatments you consent to receiving if you ever lose the legal capacity to articulate your own wishes. Some medical decisions you can make for yourself in advance include:

  • CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation)

  • Artificial ventilation

  • Feeding tubes

  • Organ donation
  • Blood transfusion
  • Dialysis
  • Drugs
  • Palliative care

Having these kinds of decisions made in advance can eliminate stress and confusion for your loved ones if you ever become legally incapacitated.

ARIZONA LIVING WILL REQUIREMENTS

Arizona has its own requirements for a living will, but will generally accept living wills that are valid in other states, as an Arizona living will may be validated in other states as well. In Arizona, a living will must be for an adult, and in writing. The language in the document must clearly indicate that the testator meant to create a living will. It must be dated and signed by the testator. A living will only requires one witness in Arizona, compared to a will which needs two witnesses. Just like a will, notarizing a living will strengthens it against potential challenges in the future.
