Living wills are an essential part of any estate plan in Concord.
The varying needs of individuals impact the way their estate is set up and managed. Living wills are part of nearly every estate plan or will package, and here at NorthPointe Law Group, we can help you simply and correctly create one of these essential estate planning documents in Concord, North Carolina.
A living will is also known as a Declaration for Desire for a Natural Death. These documents are a statement made by an individual outlining that he or she does not want to stay on life support if they suffer a terminal condition. Know that a living will is different from a last will and testament in that it does not address guardianship and the disposal of property. Living wills are also different from Do Not Resuscitate Orders (DNRs) that indicate that medical personnel should not intervene if a certain person becomes unresponsive.
Living wills can be drafted in many formats depending on the wishes of the creator. We want you to remember that these documents are highly personal in nature, and there are no wrong or right choices. We will provide you with legal guidance as you draft this document and provide as much or as little information as you need to make important estate planning decisions.
Please reach out to us at NorthPointe Law Group if you have questions about living wills or if you want assistance drafting this important legal document. We are eager to provide you with tenacious, knowledgeable, and compassionate legal assistance!
