A living will (also known as A Desire for Natural Death in North Carolina) is a document that outlines your wishes about life support and feeding through tubes in the event you cannot speak for yourself. Even if you and your partner or family members have discussed your wishes, it’s important to create a living will so that you can ensure those wishes are carried out as you intend.
A living will is a sensitive document, one many find difficult to discuss. We have more than 30 years of experience in living wills and other areas of law and can talk you through, step by step.
Don’t force your family to guess and make difficult decisions about your treatment when you’re in the hospital. Creating a living will and letting your family know about it will help them during an emotional time and help ensure your wishes are followed.
