A Michigan living will is a document that individuals can use to detail the health care they would like to receive in critical or end-of-life scenarios. The state of Michigan is one of three that does not legally recognize living wills. However, this does not mean that it is discouraged to complete such a document as it can still impart valuable instructions to patient advocates and health care professionals when deciding whether to provide artificial nutrition, CPR, or other life-sustaining treatments and procedures. While there are no statutory signing requirements, it is recommended that both the patient and two (2) witnesses provide their signatures.
Laws – Not recognized in Michigan Legislature.
