Write a Codicil to a Will


A codicil to a Will is the only way to modify a Last Will & Testament without revoking it!

When we make a Last Will, we all know that our circumstances can change and at some point we will need to make amendments to our Last Will and Testament or even make a new one. Maybe an executor or a beneficiary named under your Last Will and Testament has passed away, maybe you have simply sold some of the assets mentioned in your Last Will and Testament or maybe you simply want to change who you to bequest your belongings to. Either way, you need to take account of these changes and update your Last Will and Testament and you need to do so quickly.

By writing your own codicil you can ensure that your wishes are up to date.


Lets be clear, if you don’t write a Codicil to Your Last Will and Testament, you could create a situation whereby:

  • YOUR possessions (some or all of them) could be divided in accordance with the law and your wishes regarding their distribution would not be taken into consideration! Codicil
  • YOUR possessions could be placed in to the hands of a person appointed by a
    Court for distribution- which could be a total stranger! Codicil
  • YOUR children could be placed into the care of a guardian appointed by a Court … this again could be a total stranger! Codicil
  • YOU could have missed a very valuable opportunity for tax planning that could end up costing your estate thousands of dollars! Codicil

However, there is a very simple solution

A Legal Codicil Form (or a codicil to a will, as its also called) allows you to modify the provisions of your Last Will & Testament without the need for engaging an attorney to draft an entirely new Last Will and Testament.  Typically, amendments made by a Codicil Form tend to either add or revoke minor provisions of a Will (e.g., an asset which you had gifted to someone has been sold, or a new asset has been bought which you want to gift) or, alternatively, the amendments completely change the majority of the gifts (including the beneficiary of the residuary estate).
