A Nebraska living will is a legal document that is used to explain to healthcare providers what you'd like to happen in the event that you're unable to make your own decisions. A Nebraska living will is also used to name someone, known as an attorney-in-fact, to make decisions on your behalf. Nebraska has extremely specific laws about who you can name as your attorney-in-fact. A Nebraska living will must either include the signatures of two witnesses or it must be notarized. Nebraska also has specific laws about who can and cannot act as your witness. For instance, a witness may not be your attorney-in-fact, your spouse, or your healthcare provider.
Nebraska doesn’t have a law that regulates living wills.
A Nebraska last will and testament is another important part of a well-planned estate.
