LIVING WILL LEGAL DOCUMENT SOFTWARE: ADVANCED HEALTHCARE DIRECTIVE AND HEALTHCARE POWER OF ATTORNEY
A Living Will is an important healthcare document. It allows you to clearly spell out to your family and trusted friends EXACTLY the steps you want them to take -- and EXACTLY the steps you DO NOT want them to take -- should you become seriously ill, seriously injured, or incapacitated.
And quite candidly, some Living Wills are better than others.
In the past, Living Wills were often brief and did little more than discuss life support situations, leaving many issues up for consideration or debate.
Today, the more accepted document is an Advanced Healthcare Directive, which combines the end-of-life designations of a Living Will with the ability to name an Agent who can oversee treatment if need be through a Durable Healthcare Power of Attorney. Combining these documents covers nearly every medical, jurisdictional and life support situation, and allows the Principal (the person making the Living Will) to choose an Agent in advance who will make life and death healthcare decisions on his or her behalf.
Standard Legal's Living Will software provides this comprehensive Advanced Healthcare Directive combination, which is legal and valid in all USA states.
The software also contains a HIPAA Medical Records Release Authorization form. HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, imposes privacy rules on how and when a medical provider can disclose information about its patients. Without the special authorization given by this form, your doctor or treatment facility cannot disclose medical information that might be crucial to the enactment of your Living Will. Without a proper HIPAA release, the persons that you appointed to act as your Agent might not be able to obtain the information necessary to enforce the wishes of your Healthcare Power of Attorney. Further, without the appropriate HIPAA release, medical facilities treating you may have difficulty obtaining your past medical information. This HIPAA release will allow medical information to be provided to your current doctors and hospitals, PLUS the person listed as your Agent in making health care decisions on your behalf.
With all of these critical forms packaged together and provided in a format that is easy to use, the Standard Legal Living Will software program is a truly great value. Why leave your healthcare decisions to chance -- or let them be decided by some unnamed doctor, hospital bureaucrat or the state -- when you can make your intentions known without question quickly, easily and affordably!
WHAT CUSTOMERS SAY: STANDARD LEGAL LIVING WILL
I ordered three Standard Legal forms: Last Will & Testament, Power of Attorney and Living Will. The forms were written in such a way that the 'legaleze' was easy for a layman such as myself to understand; the language and meaning left nothing to question. No law library was necessary. The witnesses and Notary I chose to verify my signature were amazed at the simplicity of it all. I am satisfied that the forms will do the job when the time comes to settle my estate...
-- Charles L. White, Fulton TX
I purchased Standard Legal software in order to prepare a Will, a Power of Attorney and a Living Will for my ailing mother-in-law. The forms were easy to use and I prepared the documents in a short period of time. Unfortunately, my mother-in-law died within 10 days of the forms being prepared and signed. The local hospital honored the Living Will forms, and the attorney who assisted me in probating her estate was impressed with the quality of the Will. The estate was probated without incident. I will be purchasing additional Standard Legal software in order to sell my mother-in-law's real estate. Your software saved me hundreds of dollars, so thank you!
-- Bryan Frank, Anderson IN
With a very sick father suffering from cancer, Standard Legal allowed me to get the appropriate legal documents prepared for him without my father ever having to leave the comfort of his home. Thanks, Standard Legal.

SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS & SOFTWARE FILE SPECIFICATIONS:
Standard Legal software is PDF based and works on virtually all Windows, Apple, Macintosh, Android and Linux-based systems for PCs, laptops, tablets and mobile devices.
The legal documents are interactive PDFs with a questionnaire that turns the information you provide into a finished legal document using the FREE Adobe Reader. It is critical to use the most up-to-date version of Reader (currently v11) to ensure the software works correctly. If you already use Reader, check the version under 'Help > Check for Updates'. You may also use the up-to-date commercial version of Adobe Acrobat Pro to complete the forms.
Adobe Reader should ALWAYS be used as a stand-alone program or mobile app. It should NEVER be used within a web browser, as doing so significantly limits the functionality of Reader.
Links to a downloadable file are presented immediately upon the completion of your order. The initial download is provided as a .zip file which much be expanded to access the documents, overviews and instructions.
For most titles, the initial download contains everything. For titles with many state-specific documents, additional files must also be downloaded from our online forms server. Read the START-HERE.txt file included in the initial download for specific instructions. Once a file is downloaded, the documents within can be completed offline; an internet connection is not required to complete any of the forms after download.
