Preserving & Protecting Your Family’s Assets & Legacy

Draft A Living Will That Addresses Your Needs And Wishes

You want your loved ones to feel cared for when you die. A living will can help you address those wishes and determine who your most cherished belongings will go to. You can also use it to lay out your end-of-life requests. While a will is one of the most crucial components of your estate plan, you need to make sure it’s legally enforceable and clearly states your beneficiaries.

At Futterman, Lanza & Pasculli, LLP, our lawyers can help you add a legally sound will to your estate plan to feel prepared for the future and the unexpected. We understand how crucial your wishes are and will work diligently to fulfill them.

We provide will-drafting services from our Smithtown, Bay Shore and New York offices.

Additionally, if you have other estate planning matters you want to address, you can learn more about what we can do for you by visiting our estate planning page.

Why Include A Living Will In Your Estate Plan?

A living will is the greatest gift you can give your family, particularly when their emotions are running high as they grieve your passing. If you become incapacitated and are unable to make decisions for yourself, having a living will in place will give your family the comfort of knowing:

  • When you want to activate a do-not-resuscitate order (DNR).
  • The extent of extraordinary medical measures doctors may take.
  • Why you want to be on life support.
  • How long you want to be on life support.
  • When you want to be taken off life support.
  • The types and amount of pain medication you want to be administered.
  • Final wishes regarding the disposition of your remains upon death.
  • Other specific details related to your end-of-life health care treatment.

When your loved ones have this information upfront, they can adhere to the requests you laid out for them. That way, they don’t have to frantically figure out how to address your wishes as they grieve.
