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patients may choose (in an advance directive or through a durable power of attorney) to have life-sustaining procedures withdrawn.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.
