Making a Florida Living Will

  • What is a Florida Living Will?

    Whether you reside in Jacksonville or Miami, a Florida Living Will is an effective way to help ensure your end-of-life treatment wishes are fulfilled. It also insulates your loved ones from having to agonize over making decisions on your behalf without knowing your wishes in advance. Legally and clearly communicating your preferences is possible with the Rocket Lawyer Living Will.

  • What is a Living Will and why is it important to have one?

    A Florida Living Will enables you to express to your family and healthcare providers what your preferences are in case of an emergency that results in end-of-life care. You can detail your preference about many medical treatments, such as fibrillation and dialysis. In case you are unable to express your health care wishes, it is important that you've outlined your directives in advance.

    Discuss these wishes with your family and doctor to prevent family disputes in the future. There's no reason to make a difficult situation worse. When you state your end-of-life health care wishes with a Florida Living Will, you're making things easier for all potential parties involved.
