Consent By Next Of Kin

Next » « Previous


Most states have a "required request" law. The typical law requires that the next of kin consent to the gift of all or part of a decedent's body for transplantation or other purposes.

The laws usually specify who may be contacted to give consent in order of priority. For instance, spouse, adult children, parents, adult siblings, legal guardian or other authorized individual. An authorized individual is usually someone authorized or obligated to dispose of the body.
