Louisiana Power Of Attorney And Advanced Directive Agreements
Effectively using advance directives and powers of attorney can be extremely important for families.
An advance directive, also known as a living will, allows for the documentation of medical wishes at the end of life. This can include situations when someone is:
- Unable to make medical decisions
- In the medical condition specified in the state’s living will law (such as “terminal illness” or “permanent unconsciousness”)
Powers of attorney can also help plan for unexpected catastrophic events. This is important even for those without extensive assets so they can avoid conservatorship proceedings that can compromise one’s wishes. Powers of attorney agreements can also further define end-of-life decisions and who will make them.
If you are planning for or are faced with any such issues, an experienced legal team is an incredibly important asset.
