Is My Health Care Directive Legal In All 50 States?

Laws regarding advance directives are not the same in all fifty states in the U.S. If you spend a great deal of time in another state, or move to another state, be sure you understand the laws. An advance directive document executed in another state can be used in other states if the document complies with the law of the other state as well.

The information on this page is meant to provide a general overview of the law. The laws in your state and/or city may deviate significantly from those described here. If you have specific questions related to your situation you should speak with a local attorney.
