Celine’s father is terminally ill. Celine would like to write a WILL on behalf of his father. However, she was advised that she could not do so as her father should write the WILL himself.
Is that true?


Yes. Celine can write a WILL on behalf of her father provided her father possesses the testamentary capacity to instruct Celine to write a WILL in accordance to his wishes. In other words, his father must have the ability to make a valid WILL.
