Although the term Living Will may indicate that it is a Will, in reality, it is more similar to a Power of Attorney than a Will. Therefore, don't be confused by the title of the document. The purpose of a living will is to allow you to make decisions about life support and directs others to implement your desires in that regard.
Some States use documents with other names which serve the same function as a Living Will.
Q: If I make a living will, does that assure that the Courts will not get involved and that family members will not be allowed to fight over the decision I make in the Living Will about whether I desire to continue life support?
A: No, but it changes the facts and reduces the chances that your wishes would not be followed. Family members could still dispute the medical opinions that you will not recover.
