Living Wills

December 22, 2011 by Mitchell A. Port

Sometimes probate attorneys in California will provide free forms just for the asking. One free form is the California Advance Health Care Directive found in the Probate Code under Sections 4700-4701. The Advance Health Care Directive used to be known as a living will, a pull-the-plug form, a right-to-die form, DNR, and the end of life form.

The form is free at this link.

This and other estate planning topics ought to be discussed with your California estate planning attorney.
