Why You May Need a
Right of Disposition Document
In Louisiana, all powers of attorney expire at the time of death, and it's your legal next of kin who gets to decide what happens to your body after you die.
Wake has partnered with The Pro Bono Project to draft a simple form called a Funeral and Disposition of Remains Directive, or Right of Disposition, for short. This 2-page form allows you to name a representative to make decisions about what happens to your body after you die, is fully enforceable under Louisiana law, and requires just your notarized signature.
By having this form in place, you and your loved ones can rest easy knowing your decisions are in the right hands.
