Living Wills and Health Care Directives – The Importance of Legally Binding Documents in Minnesota

Living Wills and Health Care Directives are essential legal documents that have been in use for many years in Minnesota and around the country. A living will began as a document merely suggesting one’s wishes concerning end-of-life decisions. Doctors were in control when it came to making important end-of-life decisions. However, they would collaborate with the family, and they were ultimately the ones who decided which medical options would be best.

Since the days of a living will merely being a suggestion, the legislature has created laws that now authorize powers of attorney for health care decisions that allow selected people to make decisions for you when you are unable. The suggestive living will has now evolved into the legally binding health care directive and is of the utmost importance in medical, end-of-life decision making, and estate planning. With over 100 years of combined legal experience, the attorneys at Jeddeloh & Snyder PA, can assist you with estate planning and elder law.
