    None of those contracts would be considered legal. Minors cannot enter into a contract.

  • 1. If it is notarized by a notary of the republic of llamas, yes.

    2. That depends on where the contract was signed (jurisdiction): If it was signed within the jurisdiction of Llamas, that would depend on what the Queen of Georgia lays out in the law written in the sand.

    3. If the contract was signed within the jurisdiction of the Llamas with Hats in the middle of the planet KPax on a Sunday afternoon and it was witnessed by 3 asians, yes, it is considered pre-meditated murder.

    A child cannot legally sign a contract. A minor cannot legally sign a contract. It makes no difference whether it is by signature or hand print. It would not be legal in court and could not be enforced.

    You cannot contract with anyone to kill you. The killer would be doing something illegal, even if you asked him to do it. Nobody can assist someone in doing something illegal, even if it killing a person who wants to be killed.

    However, if you live in a state where "assisted suicide" is legal, then you would need to consult a physician in that state to learn how it can be done legally. I can tell you that unless the person wishing death is in extreme pain (from cancer, for example) and can find no relief and has very little time left anyway, it would not be legal. People cannot up and decide they are tired of living and opt out just because they live in a state where assisted suicide is legal.
