Discuss the request with the physician

The client should discuss the request for a living will with the physician. The client should also discuss this desire with the family. Wills should be prepared with legal council and should identify the executor of the state, address distribution and use of property, and the specific plans for burial. Options A, and B maybe helpful, their contact would not be the initial step. The lawyer would be contacted following discussion with the physician and family.
