Living Wills In Texas

Texas Living Wills Offer The Family Peace Of Mind

If you live in Texas, you and your spouse should consider contacting a probate attorney to create your living wills. Basically, living wills in Texas are important medical directives. The importance of this document is the fact that it gives your personal wishes, in regards to medical treatment, in case you are in such a medical condition that you are unable to give consent at a specific time.

In Texas, living wills are a part of the Health and Safety Code under Section 166.031. This point of law outlines the requirements for preparing living wills, the specific date a living will becomes effective, and the physicians’ rights regarding these specific wills.

The Importance Of Living Wills (Medical Directives)

Although people think of such wills as a necessity for married couples and older people, the truth is they should be available for people of all ages. Texas allows for any person who is mentally competent and over the age of 18 years to sign the document. Therefore, if a young person should be involved in a tragic accident or diagnosed with a terminal illness, this person can designate the specific medical treatments s/he wants to have administered.

All such living wills in Texas must be signed and witnessed. If the document is notarized, then the notary public can also act as the witness. Otherwise, the living will must be signed in the presence of two witnesses. It is required that both witnesses be at least 18 years of age and competent. Having a Texas probate attorney assist in creating this vital legal document will help ensure its legitimacy and make certain your wishes will be followed.
