    Default Arizona Advance Directive

    My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: Arizona

    I want to fill out an advance directive. The first part of the Arizona version of an advance directive is for naming an agent and a backup agent. Do I absolutely need to name an agent. I know, it probably seems like a stupid question with an obvious answer. Will my desires filled out in the form be enforced by the state or do I need an agent to actively try to enforce my desires as written. Thank you in advance.

    You don't "need" to do anything, but any ambiguity in what your advance directive says will be impossible to resolve without a named agent. Why wouldn't you want to name an agent?

    Maybe they don't have anyone they think they can trust. Not everyone has extended family or friends they would trust and would make their agent.

    OP could always use a law firm as their agent to carry out their wishes.

    No, you do not.

    If the directive is clear, addresses the particular situation, and the health care provider is aware of it then your wishes should be carried out. If there is a problem, though, the state is not itself going to step in to handle it for you. Either your agent or closest family member would need to take that up.
