Oklahoma estate planning tools: the Living Will

This morning’s “Tools” post is about the Oklahoma Living Will (part of an Advance Directive for Healthcare).

This document allows you make decisions about how your end-of-life are is handled and appoint a person you trust to help the doctors carry out your decisions. Most other states have the same type of living will provisions.

If the living will is done properly, the doctors, hospital and family are required to follow it:

A physician or other health care provider who is furnished the original or a photocopy of the advance directive shall make it a part of the declarant’s medical record and, if unwilling to comply with the advance directive, promptly so advise the declarant.

If you have questions about an Oklahoma living will or any other estate planning issues, please feel free to contact me and to find out more about estate planning listen to my podcast “Estate Planning Demystified“.

On this blog, I write about and try to answer practical Oklahoma legal questions. My focus and most experience is in estate planning and business issues including Oklahoma non-compete law. I make a living as an attorney in the law firm I founded, Shawn J. Roberts, P.C. in Oklahoma City. I live in Edmond with my wife Amy and my two children, Sam (19) and David (11). We live precisely in the path of where the "wind comes sweeping down the plains."

Yet another issue is that video games can be serious as the name indicated with the most important focus on mastering rather than leisure. Although, there is an entertainment facet to keep your children engaged, each and every game is often designed to work with a specific experience or curriculum, such as instructional math or scientific discipline. Thanks for your post.
