A West Virginia living will is a legal form used to convey a person’s wishes regarding life-prolonging treatments. This document can only be created when the principal is of sound mind and must be signed by two witnesses and a notary public. A living will only comes into effect if the principal has an illness that renders them unable to communicate effectively with medical staff.
