How a living will can help your family
There are a lot of items that people in Florida need to be taken into consideration when working on their estate plan, which can include a will or a trust. By creating a trust, one may be able to avoid probate, which in the end can save your loved ones time and money. Moreover, a comprehensive estate plan can help asset distribution run more smoothly. However, one thing that should not be taken lightly or left off the table is that of a living will.
A living will is not actually a will, but rather instructions for doctors, medical professionals or a power of attorney to follow in the event that you are injured or sick to the point where you cannot communicate your wishes with regards to your medical care.
This is important not only for you, but for your family as well, who may have disagreements on how they believe you should be treated or how they suspect you would like to be treated. Creating a living will helps avoid any confusion or debate, as a living will states specifically how you are treated if you become incapacitated.
