Do I Need a Lawyer to Help Me Make a Living Will?


The simple answer to this question is “No, you normally don’t need a lawyer to help you make a Living Will”. However, if you are someone that is not comfortable in preparing your own legal documents or simply don’t understand what Living Wills are all about then you should contact an attorney who will be able to prepare a tailored Living Will for you. 


For those of you that feel confident enough to prepare your own legal documents, making a Living Will can be relatively straight forward. There are numerous self-help legal books on the market which can adequately help you make a Living Will. These books typically give you background information on Living Wills and examples of Living Wills. In fact, many books contain the state approved versions of Living Wills. These are Living Will forms that have been specifically drawn up by the legislator of a state for use in that state. In the majority of cases, these state Living Will forms are offered as samples of the type of Living Will forms that can be used in a state rather than saying that this is the type of Living Will form that must be used.


In addition, there are also a number of websites offering online Living Wills. Online Living Wills are simply Living Wills that can be created online through the use of an interactive online question and answer process. You simply answer some questions about what you would like in your Living Will and the software program prepares a Living Will that suits your specific circumstances.


If you would like to learn more about Living Wills, we have included a number of articles on this website which cover the basic questions asked about Living Wills. Feel free to read them and let us know if you have any more questions. Remember, every good estate plan includes a Living Will!
