Making a Texas Living Will

  • What is a Texas Living Will?

    It's important that your family members and care providers know your preferences for end-of-life care. A Texas Living Will is a legal document that outlines your preferences with regard to what life-saving measures medical staff and first-responders are allowed to perform on you to save or prolong your life. It's difficult to think about potentially devastating situations, but preparation is key.

  • When can I use the Texas Living Will document?

    You may use a Texas Living Will document if:

    • You want to specify your wishes so that it is more likely they will be carried out.
    • You are facing the possibility of surgery or a hospitalization.
    • You have declining health.
    • You have been diagnosed with a terminal condition.
  • Does a Living Will need to be notarized in Texas?

    It depends. You can either have your Texas Living Will notarized or signed in front of two competent, adult witnesses.

  • What is the difference between a Living Will and a Will?

    Although the term "Living Will" contains the word "Will" in it, these two documents have very different purposes. A Living Will sets forth your health care wishes should there ever come a time when you are incapacitated and unable to tell doctors and other medical providers what you do and don't want with respect to your healthcare and possible life-saving or life-sustaining measures. A Will is a document that you prepare in order to set forth your wishes for the distribution of your property and assets after your death.
