Daytona Beach Lawyers - Advance Directive

Do I have to write an advance directive under Florida law?

No, there is no legal requirement to have a written advance directive.  However, if you have not made an advance directive or designated a healthcare surrogate, healthcare decisions may be made for you by a court appointed guardian, your spouse, your adult child, your parent, your adult sibling, an adult relative or close friend, in that order.  This person would be known as a "proxy."

To learn more about a "proxy" or if you have any questions please feel free to contact the Daytona Beach lawyers of Seitz & Tresher.
