How To Change Your Will

Next » « Previous


To change your Will, you'll need to use an amendment called a codicil.

  • A codicil is a document that contains a description of the changes you want to make.
  • For a codicil to be effective, it must be executed with all the same procedures you had to follow when you executed the Will that the codicil changes.
  • Be sure it is clear in the codicil what is to be changed in your Will, and what remains unchanged.
  • If you have a simple Will, or are making a large number of changes to your Will, it might be easier to just write a new Will.
  • To prevent accidentally making your Will invalid, we strongly consider using an attorney to write a codicil.

Make sure any changes are challenge-proof.
