Is a lawyer needed to complete an advance healthcare directive?

No, a lawyer is not required for this document. While you do not need an attorney, you should make sure you understand all of the provisions and the consequences involved. Your physician can help explain your options.

Although an attorney is not required, you will need to read the document carefully and sign it. One or more witnesses and a notary may be required to witness you sign the document depending on your state.
