AMERICA’S BEST LIVING WILL SELF-HELP LEGAL DOCUMENT SOFTWARE
A Living Will is an important healthcare document. It allows you to clearly spell out to your family and trusted friends EXACTLY the steps you want them to take — and EXACTLY the steps you DO NOT want them to take — should you become seriously ill, seriously injured, or incapacitated.
And quite candidly, some Living Wills are better than others.
In the past, Living Wills were often brief and did little more than discuss life support situations, leaving many issues up for consideration or debate. Standard Legal’s package of Living Will healthcare documents is comprehensive, eliminating that concern.
LIVING WILL SOFTWARE & DOCUMENT EXAMPLES
HOW STANDARD LEGAL SOFTWARE WORKS: A simple introduction and easy-to-read overviews are presented first. A questionnaire follows. Text fields, check boxes and drop-down menus are used to collect your answers, with additional instructions next to each field if needed. As soon as the questionnaire is finished, the final documents are created instantly: just save and print! It’s that easy.
ADVANCED HEALTHCARE DIRECTIVE AND HEALTHCARE POWER OF ATTORNEY
Today, the more accepted document is an Advanced Healthcare Directive, which combines the end-of-life designations of a Living Will with the ability to name an Agent who can oversee treatment if need be through a Durable Healthcare Power of Attorney. Combining these documents covers nearly every medical, jurisdictional and life support situation, and allows the Principal (the person making the Living Will) to choose an Agent in advance who will make life and death healthcare decisions on his or her behalf.
Standard Legal’s Living Will software provides this comprehensive Advanced Healthcare Directive combination, which is legal and valid in all USA states.
The software also contains a HIPAA Medical Records Release Authorization form. HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, imposes privacy rules on how and when a medical provider can disclose information about its patients. Without the special authorization given by this form, your doctor or treatment facility cannot disclose medical information that might be crucial to the enactment of your Living Will. Without a proper HIPAA release, the persons that you appointed to act as your Agent might not be able to obtain the information necessary to enforce the wishes of your Healthcare Power of Attorney. Further, without the appropriate HIPAA release, medical facilities treating you may have difficulty obtaining your past medical information. This HIPAA release will allow medical information to be provided to your current doctors and hospitals, PLUS the person listed as your Agent in making health care decisions on your behalf.
Finally, a Minor Child Emergency Healthcare Authorization Form is also included in this package. This form allows a parent or guardian to designate another responsible adult to make emergency healthcare decisions for a child if the primary guardian is not immediately available to do so.
With all of these critical forms packaged together and provided in a format that is easy to use, the Standard Legal Living Will software program is a truly great value. Why leave your healthcare decisions to chance — or let them be decided by some unnamed doctor, hospital bureaucrat or the state — when you can make your intentions known without question quickly, easily and affordably!

SYSTEM, SOFTWARE AND FILE USE REQUIREMENTS:
Standard Legal software is PDF-based and works on virtually all Windows, Apple, Macintosh, Android and Linux-based PCs, laptops, tablets and mobile devices.
Using the FREE Adobe Reader (or the commercial Adobe Acrobat), the legal documents are interactive PDFs featuring a questionnaire that converts the information you provide into a finished legal document. It is best to use the most up-to-date version of Reader; see ‘Help > Check for Updates’ in the program’s menu to get the latest version. It is CRITICAL that Reader ALWAYS be used as a stand-alone program or mobile app and NEVER within a web browser.
Links to a downloadable .zip file are presented immediately upon the completion of your order. This .zip must be expanded to access the PDF files. Most computers have an expansion program like WinZip pre-installed; if your computer does not we recommend StuffIt Expander (it’s FREE!). Once the file is downloaded, all documents within can be completed offline, no internet connection required. Read the START-HERE.txt file included in the initial download for more instructions.
Access links to the downloadable .zip file and/or the online forms server for this title are available for one (1) year after the date of purchase, upon request. Files downloaded and saved to a device may be used without time limit, but new downloads are no longer accessible one year after the date of purchase. A discount code is available to past customers by email to make a new or updated purchase.
Is Standard Legal Software Right for You?
To use any type of software requires a basic understanding of how a computer device operates. To use Standard Legal software, you must be able to complete these basic computer tasks: download a software file; expand a .zip file; enter a username and password to access a protected website; navigate a menu; install and launch a program; and open, save then print a completed document. If you do not fully understand how to complete any of these common steps, we recommend you use our Document Preparation Service or find a local attorney to create documents for you.
