Do I Have To Write An Advance Directive Under Florida Law?

Do I Have To Write An Advance Directive Under Florida Law?

A: No, there is no legal requirement to have a written advance directive. However, if you have not made an advance directive or designated a healthcare surrogate, healthcare decisions may be made for you by a court appointed guardian, your spouse, your adult child, your parent, your adult sibling, an adult relative or close friend, in that order. This person would be known as a “proxy.”
