Revocation of Living Will/Advance Health Directive

Last Updated: 8/5/2015

Document Description

Want to revoke or cancel a living will (AKA advance health directive)? No problem, just use this simple form to nullify your previously signed advance directive.

Living Wills can be revoked at any time. If you want to change a living will/advance health directive, first revoke the original, then draft and sign a new living will. It can be confusing for doctors and family members if you try to simply change a prior advance directive.

Be sure to track down all signed copies of the original (including any electronic copies), and destroy them so that there is no confusion later. If you are incapacitated and your family and doctors are trying to determine your wishes, it will be extremely confusing for them if they have two conflicting living wills, both signed.

We know most people aren't in the mood to celebrate when you create (or revoke) a living will, but we'll try to brighten the process for you with some good news: this Revocation of Living Will is free!

Note: A living will is not to be confused with a Medical Power of Attorney. For more information, see our article What's the Difference Between a Living Will and Medical Power of Attorney?
