Do I need a lawyer to complete my advance directive or living will?
No, you do not need a lawyer to complete your advance directive or living will. You may want to consult a private attorney, however, if you make modifications to Delaware's advance directive form.
The advance directive form needs to be signed in the presence of witnesses and it is recommended, although not required, that it also be signed in the presence of a notary.
For more information and a copy of Delaware's Advance Directive form, see the Advance Directives section of our website.
