PDF Editor FAQ

Is a health care directive the same thing as a living will and can one have both a health care directive plus a durable power of attorney or do they conflict, in California specifically but likely same in all states?

There are three basic documents you want:Living will - explains what you do and do not want done if you become incapacitated and heroic measures must be taken to save your lifeHealthcare power of attorney - provides the ability for a third party to make your healthcare decisions for you if you become incapacitatedFinancial power of attorney - provides the ability for a third party to make financial decisions and handle financial matters for you if you become incapacitated.Different states may call them different things, but they are all the same general idea.

What ways are available for adults to become "adoptive family", that would be legally recognized in the important moments of life?

I think California is the only state to propose allowing 3 parents to a child. I don't know if this passed or has even been up for a vote. Other than that, I don't know of any other way to make an adoptive family similar to the one you speak of legally. This has a long way to go before it becomes the norm as second parent adoption (the adoption of a child by the same-sex partner of the parent) is prohibited many places in the US still and this has far more support. Emotionally and ceremonially, many people accomplish what you are talking about through godparents.Carole Unter mentioned that you can displace actual relatives with friends in many legal relationships that automatically default to relatives. This is very common with wills and trusts being set up for godchildren. People also often designate someone other than a spouse, parent, or child if there is estrangement or a strained relationship as their healthcare power of attorney or as a person with some sort of power in an advanced healthcare directive.Who knows what the future will bring though?Thanks for the A2A!

I'm a disabled man living in California, and I suffer from schizophrenia. Can my lifelong friend become my caregiver? He basically helps me with everything. If he can be my caregiver, how would I go about making it happen?

You will need legal advice from somebody qualified to speak to California law.I live in Ohio. I can tell you that here, it is possible to make another adult my healthcare or financial power of attorney which means that they can speak for me at hospitals, with doctors, and about financial matters. Obviously, it is an act of significant trust to delegate your power of attorney to another person. Your doctor should be able to refer you to a hospital-affiliated social worker who can give you some guidance on what the process would look like in California for inviting another adult to become your caregiver.I had brain surgery last December. I’ve experienced some damage to my short term memory. Whenever anybody calls me up about my business affairs, I explain to them that I need support from the person who has my power of attorney and I want to invite them into the conversation. Sometimes they ask me to send them a Notarized copy of the power of attorney document, or a HIPAA release stating that my caregiver/POA is included in the conversation at my request. I paid an Ohio Estate Attorney to draft a Power of Attorney document plus a HIPAA Release.
