    Hi guys, I want to write my 'will' and I'm 23 yo. Is this possible?

    I plan to put one of my parent's name when i die. This is somewhat related to relationship and health I guess.

    Thanks

    I believe it's 18 for both the US and UK so yes you could. But then if you just wanted that info I suspect you would have googled it instead of making a post here so I think what you really wanted was for people to ask why you want to write one in the first place. So assuming I'm correct how about we just skip to the real reason you're here?

    Since it is a legal document you have to do it through a lawyer.

    Btw why is this in H&R?

    Yup. And it doesn't have to go through a lawyer, as long as you have an independant witness sign it. I have even heard unsigned wills are acceptable.

    You can get a "make-your-own-will" pack from WH Smith for like £15. Bought my dad it as a joke once, he didn't take it too well lol

    Oh right, I thought that because it was a legal document it had to.

    I stand corrected.

    I thought it would be relevant to health and relationship topic. As it does involve my health and the relationship in the equation.

    Thanks! I was walking around the city and was talking to a friend of mine who lives in the UK, currently at her place for the night. From the conversation we were having, out of impulse, I thought it was a good idea to put my will to my parents. Of course, its not something we should be thinking about but when is the best time? I did not tell her this as its my personal choice and no one else.

    Coincidentally I was on this forum, so thought I'd quickly ask as I was about to depart.

    Thank you everyone for the replies
