A Texas living will is also referred to as a directive. A Texas living will is used to document your wishes related to medical care. Healthcare providers will consult a Texas living will if you are unable to make your own medical decisions. A Texas living will is also used to name an agent. The agent will make decisions for you if you can't do it. A Texas living will must be signed by witnesses or be notarized.
§ 166.033: Texas law includes an example of a written advance healthcare directive. It also recommends that individuals creating their own living will review it on a regular basis and update it as needed.
Additionally, you should create a Texas last will and testament to ensure that your wishes for your assets and minor children can also be followed instead of left in the hands of the Texas Probate Court.
