Michigan Living Will: What Is It?

A Michigan living will is a legal document that you complete to explain your wishes related to healthcare. This document is relied upon in the event that you are no longer able to make your own medical decisions. A Michigan living will is also used to nominate a patient advocate to make healthcare decisions if you are incapacitated. The person named must be at least 18 years old. Although Michigan has no state law that authorizes the use of a living will, federal law creates the right for patients to have one in place to make future healthcare decisions. Your Michigan living will must be signed by two witnesses to be declared legally valid.
