Living Wills

 

A Living Will is a legal document in which you make known your wishes regarding the withholding or termination of life-support.  Since a Living Will is authorized by State law, the form that it takes will vary from state-to-state.   North Carolina's Living Will statute is also called the Right to a Natural Death and can be found at § 90‑321 of the North Carolina General Statutes.
