Alaska Estate Planning Laws

Welcome to FindLaw's section on Alaska's estate planning statutes, which covers everything from wills and living wills to durable powers of attorney and death with dignity laws. While having a planned estate is particularly helpful for older individuals, it's generally a good idea to plan early and get the process started while relatively healthy. While Alaska does not condone doctor-assisted suicide, patients may choose (in an advance directive or through a durable power of attorney) to have life-sustaining procedures withdrawn. And, as in most other states, Alaska requires wills to be signed by at least two witnesses and may be revoked at any time. Click on a link below to learn more about Alaska estate planning laws.
