A Michigan living will, which can also be called an advanced directive, is a written document that spells out the medical treatment a person would like to receive or not receive. It comes into effect if they become very sick to the point that they are unable to communicate what they want at that time.
Signature Requirements: In Michigan, there are no laws that regulate Living Wills, however, the will has to be signed and or notarized to give it a legal effect.
Write down the full name (including first and last name) of the person making the living will (this person is also known as the declarant) on the form
Underneath where the declarant’s full name is written, there is a statement that is to be carefully read and if this statement is agreed to, the declarant can then move on to the next step.
The declarant is to write down the sort of medical treatment they would like to receive. Another statement follows this; if agreed to, the declarant can proceed.
Following this statement, the date the document is written, the signature of the declarant, and his/her home address are to be entered.
Witness Statement: There must be a witness who agrees that the Declarant is of sound mind, not fraudulent, and isn’t making a living will under pressure. After agreeing to this, the witness must insert their name, signature, and home address in the tab that follows.
A DNR Order (which is made by the Declarant that if he/she dies, they should not be revived) is also provided and is to be filled with appropriate and correct details. This order usually comes in two forms and attestation of witnesses follows.
