The purpose of a New Jersey living will is to make healthcare providers aware of your wishes related to medical care if you are no longer able to make your own medical decisions. A New Jersey living will is also used to name a healthcare representative. This person will make medical decisions on your behalf if you cannot do it. When you sign your New Jersey living will, you must either have two witnesses or it must be notarized.
§ 26:2H-57: After a living will is created, the patient may suspend it even if they do not have what is normally considered the required mental capacity to enter into such an agreement. It may be suspended or revoked in any manner in which the patient is able to communicate.
In addition to a living will, it is important to create a New Jersey last will and testament to ensure that your wishes are honored.
