Below is a slideshow presentation I have created to help explain part of the North Carolina General Statutes that explain what each are. It is important to have on record who you want making medical decisions for you if you are unable to do so for yourself. Having a Healthcare Power of Attorney and/or Living Will document allows you to express your healthcare wishes and make sure they are carried out.
This is not legal advice and other states have different statutes governing intestate distribution. You should always consult a local lawyer for local advice on your estate.
