In Nebraska, you must complete two additional forms in order to have a valid Advance Directive. The first type is a Declaration of Living Will, while the second is a "Healthcare Power of Attorney" (a.k.a. Health Care Proxy).

Your signature must be notarized OR two (2) witnesses must sign your New England Living Will in order for it to be legitimate.
