Advance Health Care Directives

Advance health care directives and living wills are important documents that should be a part of every person’s estate plan. Everyone hopes that they will always be able to make decisions concerning their own health. However, the reality is that there may come a time when you cannot make your own health care decisions, either briefly or for an extended period of time. If you have advance health care directives, even in those situations, your wishes and instructions will still be followed. In Florida, competent adults have the right to make an advanced health care directive. The attorneys at the Murphy Law Group can create a personalized advance health care directive for you, which provides instructions on what life-prolonging treatments, if any, you want your doctor to perform should you become incapacitated.
