If you want to amend your Will, you need to make an official amendment in the form of a Codicil. Without this form, your Last Will won't be updated.
The process is not any easier than writing a new Will because a Codicil also needs the testator to follow the same legal execution procedures as a Will.
Use simple, concise wording. Being direct will prevent anything from being misinterpreted. By using unambiguous language, you reduce the possibility that the Codicil may be contested.
Go through the steps below to amend your Will with a Codicil:
Get an original copy of the latest version of your Will to reference to it in your Codicil.
Write down the section numbers of your will that you want to change to include them in the Codicil.
Draft the Codicil form.
Attach the Codicil to the Will and keep a copy.
