There are 3 types of Messages.
Messages in Life
These are messages that you can put together in life to surprise a loved one, or even as a way to say I’m sorry to someone. We understand that it is often difficult to ask for forgiveness in person, and the Message in Life can help with that. We believe that apologizing is a healing process, that can help us live happier and longer lives.” If you prefer, use the Time Capsule and schedule a message to yourself or to someone special 5 years from now, for example.
Communicating our affections is a way to invest in our relationships with the people we love, and it helps to promote a lighter life, full of mental and emotional health. We hope that by using our platform, you can get even closer to the people you really love and that together you can build a beautiful legacy.
Posthumous Messages are created by the subscribers so that their family and friends can receive guidance, documents and even wills, as well as emotional messages left in videos, photos, music and text. These messages are sent on the day of death or on specific dates defined by the subscriber, such as the next day, two months or even several years after his/her death.
Special Messages are designed to, in the event of the subscriber’s death, leave messages for loved ones on special occasions such as graduations, weddings and the birth of children or grandchildren, for example.
These messages are triggered by tutors after the subscriber’s death.
The cancellation of your plan can be done directly by you in the logged area by clicking on “Cancel Subscription”, or, if you prefer, by sending a message to the email email@example.com requesting the cancellation.
With your request, we will cancel future charges to your credit card and make available a link, which will be valid for 7 days, so you can download all the content you’ve included in your messages. After 7 days, all content will be automatically deleted from our database for security.
Surveys show that 49% of families experience inheritance disputes, a cause of emotional and physical distress. To help avoid this situation, we have created a specific area on the website to store your Testament and your Living Will.
A Testament, also known as Last Will, dictates the way that that your assets will be distributed and utilized following your death.
In addition to being a document in which people can dispose of their property, a Testament is also ideal for inserting information that the testator considers to be important — such as how any outstanding debts should be paid, for example. There aren’t many impediments to writing a Testament in Brazil: according to Brazilian law it suffices that the testator is lucid and is at least 16 years of age.
A Living Will, on the other hand, states your wishes regarding life support in the event that you are in a persistent vegetative state or irreversible coma and cannot communicate your wishes.
Misyu is a Family Planning tool, and we understand that structuring wills is critical so to ensure that your wishes are followed correctly when you are no longer here, as well as to brings greater security to you and your family.
See below for more information about the two types of wills.
When a person dies, a survey is carried out to ascertain all assets and rights left by the deceased. After this survey, the division of assets between the heirs will take place.
If there is no will, the assets will be distributed to the heirs by legitimate succession, i.e. according to the law.
According to Brazilian law, succession of assets will follow the order of hereditary vocation, going to the descendants (children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and ad infinitum) in competition with the spouse or partner or to the ascendants (parents, grandparents, great-grandparents and ad infinitum), also in competition with the spouse or partner.
In the absence of ascendants, the one who will receive the inheritance will be the surviving spouse or partner.
In the absence of a surviving spouse or partner, collateral relatives (brothers, uncles, nephews, great-uncles, grand-nephews, grand-nieces) are entitled.
But it may happen that the person wants to leave their property to other people, not just those listed in the law.
And that happens a lot! You often find cases of people leaving assets to people outside their family, such as friends, employees, and charities.
It is through a Testament that one stipulates to whom he/she really wants to leave his/her inheritance, in particular if the beneficiary is not listed in the law as his/her heir.
According to Brazilian law, only 50% (fifty percent) of the inheritance – that is, the available part – can be object of the will. That’s because 50% of any inheritance in Brazil must be transferred, obligatorily, to the so-called necessary heirs – if any.
These necessary heirs are the descendants (children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and ad infinitum), ascendants (parents, grandparents, great-grandparents and ad infinitum) and the spouse or partner.
We advise our clients to write their Testaments with the support of a lawyer, and that they to have the documents registered in a notary’s office.
The Living Will is a public document, registered at a notary´s office, which expresses the will of a person regarding the care, treatments, medical and therapeutic procedures he/she wants, or not, to be submitted if unconscious due to a terminal illness with no prospect of cure.
The Living Will applies not only to terminally ill people, but to all clinical stages that place patients in an end-of-life situation, such as persistent vegetative state, and chronic illnesses. The right to die with dignity is sought.
In Brazil, a “formal” version of a Living Will was Ccreated in 2012, under the name “Diretivas Antecipadas de Vontade”(DAV) with a resolution of the CFM (Federal Council of Medicine). The DAV is not legally binding, that is, it is up to the doctor to decide whether to comply with the patient’s wishes, considering technical and ethical principles. Since the CFM resolution, the number of registered DAVs in Brazil has grown, albeit timidly, according to data from the Colégio Notarial do Brasil – São Paulo Section: there were 35 DAV in 2008, 232 in 2012, 731 (highest number registered to date) in 2015 and 549 in 2020.
The Living Will is written by the patient while he/she is healthy and can be used to guide the his/her treatment provided that it respects medical ethics. The legislation regarding the use of the Living wWill is different depending on the country, but it is agreed in most of them that the patient has the right to decide on the medical treatment he/she will receive in case of imminent death. The idea of the Living Will is to allow a person a “dignified death”, avoiding unnecessary treatments – or those that have negligible benefits – for the artificial extension of the life.
The CFM resolution nº 1995/2012, defines and regulates DAV as follows:
Art. 1 Defining DAV as the set of desires, previously and expressly expressed by the patients, about care and treatments that they want, or not, to receive when they are unable to express, freely and autonomously, their will.
Art. 2. In decisions about care and treatment of patients who are unable to communicate, or to express their wishes freely and independently, the physician will take into account their DAV
§ 1 If the patient has designated a representative for this purpose, their information will be considered by the physician.
§ 2 The physicians will not consider the DAVs of the patient or representative who, in their analysis, are in disagreement with the precepts dictated by the Code of Medical Ethics.
§ 3 The patient’s DAV will prevail over any other non-medical opinion, including the family members’ wishes.
§ 4 The physician will record, in the medical record, the DAVs that were directly communicated to him/her by the patient.
§ 5 If the patient’s DAVs are not known, nor is there a designated representative, available family members or lack of consensus among them, the physician will appeal to the institution’s Bioethics Committee, if any, or, in its absence, to the Ethics Committee Physician at the hospital or to the Regional and Federal Council of Medicine to base his/her decision on ethical conflicts, when he/she deems this measure to be necessary and convenient.
Art. 3 This resolution enters into force on the date of its publication. (BRASÍLIA, 2012:269-70).
Among the advantages of having a DAV document, we can highlight three:
a) ensure that the patient’s wishes are followed by the physician.
b) avoid disagreements in the family about which procedures to adopt in case of unconsciousness of the patient.
c) protection and legal support for the physician.
We advise our clients to write their Living Will with the support of a lawyer and a family doctor, and that the document be registered in a notary’s office.
