Get Assistance with a Last Will and Testament
If you need a Last Will and Testament, it is best to have our knowledgeable lawyer on your side. I provide services for wills and living will preparation. I recommend that everyone with a family have a will. If you die without one, the Pennsylvania law on intestacy determines the distribution of your estate. Furthermore, your heirs would have to agree on who should be in charge of the estate administration. When you make a will, you have the power to decide who inherits your estate and who is in charge.
Allow Alan I. Farber, Attorney at Law, to Prepare a Living Will for You
A living will allows you to communicate your end of life wishes in regard to life-prolonging medical care. We know this legally as an advanced healthcare directive. You will indicate the medical care that you do or do not want to receive when you are unable to communicate.
If you do not want to be on a ventilator or have feeding tubes, you need a living will. The living will does not become effective until you are incapacitated or unable to communicate. It is part of long term care planning. The document is like a Do Not Resuscitate order.
