Wills and Health Care surrogate designations

All 50 states have laws that allow living wills and health care surrogate designations. The key to having the documents be valid in other states is that they must be executed with the same formalities, which means that some states don’t require documents to be notarized and other states do. For the documents to be valid in all states, it’s recommended that these documents be signed in the presence of a notary.
