South Dakota and Other States' Law on Advanced Directives

One aspect of Elder Law is planning for incapacity. Providing legal authority to another individual to make future decisions through an Advanced Directive is governed by state law.

Applicable South Dakota laws:

S.D. Codified Laws ch. 34-12D - Living Wills

S.D. Codified Laws sections 59-7-2.1 et seq. - Durable Power of Attorney

Related South Dakota laws:

S.D. Codified Laws ch. 34-12C - Health Care Consent Procedures (in the absence of a durable power of attorney for health care or the appointment of a guardian of the person.)

To locate citations to statutes from other states concerning Advance Directives, consult Advance Directives: A Legal Research Guide or WestlawNext's 50 State Statute Surveys on Living Wills and Durable Powers of Attorney. (log in required).
