Appointment of Agent to Control Disposition of Remains

An Appointment of Agent to Control Disposition of Remains allows you to appoint a person, known as your Agent, to be responsible for carrying out your burial or cremation wishes. You can limit the powers given to your Agent by including special instructions on the form.

In cases of blended families, you may prefer that your children, rather than your second wife, be responsible for carrying out this duty. The document not only expresses your intent, but it can also prevent litigation over the disposition of your remains. The most notable example of such litigation is that over the remains of Anna Nicole Smith in 2007.
