 According to the UK Embassy any will made in the Philippines will be legal in the UK but it is strongly advisable to have the Marriage Registered in the UK. A link for this is added.

 

Notarial and documentary services

Information about official documents, certificates, and notes available at the British Embassy in Manila.

Births, deaths and marriages

Information on how you can register a birth or death which occurred overseas, and legal documents for couples marrying or entering into civil partnerships abroad

Hope this helps Kev also for Diana's  Birth Too.

Son, I have not gotten a will executed here yet, but I did research it. Takes about a day, and 3000 pesos. (that is notarized)

 

I had my sister talk to the lawyer who executed my Dad's will. He said it could be on the back of an envelope as long as it is witnessed properly.

 

Now this for the states so YMMV :hystery:

 

(since your lawyers wear wigs after all :cheersty: )

any Lawyer can draw it up and no doubt get it  notarized. Youyr bank manager can get it done for you ( we did this)

You get an Online one done but you would still need to get it Checked and Notarized. Whatever you decide it is not that Difficult but for me it needs some sort of legal Advice mate.

I'd recommend having it notarized in both Phils and your home country.  For us Yanks, we can get it notarized at USEM or nearest consulate.  That way there wouldn't be any legal issue with assets/pensions that are located in home country.
