What Is The Difference Between A Will And A Living Will?

Most people understand the purpose of a will. It takes effect after a person passes away, directing how that person’s affairs should be handled. A will needs to be carefully crafted in order to be effective. Any wording that could leave questions open to interpretation could lead to time-consuming disputes. Other missteps could leave the will completely invalid. That is why it is crucial to enlist the assistance of experienced attorneys like those you will find at our law firm. We will make certain that your will is functional and meets your needs.

For most people, a will alone is not enough. Estate planning must incorporate other tools, including a living will. A living will, also referred to as an advance directive or health care directive, outlines what life-prolonging techniques may be used in the event that an incapacitating injury or illness prevents a person from making these decisions.

Our lawyers make certain that all estate plans are comprehensive and include wills, living wills and trusts as necessary.
