Advance Directives

Advance Directives are essential documents in cases of later incapacity as well. Through a Directive to Physicians individuals can provide instructions to their physicians as to their end of life wishes; ie, when one is in a terminal or an irreversible condition whether the individual wants to be kept alive using all available means or wants to be allowed to die as gently as possible. A Designation of Guardian can be used to protect against guardianship litigation in certain circumstances. A Designation of Agent to Control Disposition of Remains allows an agent to oversee cremation or burial instructions.
