When it's time to update your Will, you don't have to start from scratch. You can create a Codicil to a Will to revise your Will when you get married, divorced or have a child, among other reasons. Use our Codicil to Will to ensure the changes to your Will are legal and enforceable.
Use the Codicil to Will document if:
You want to change one or more provisions of your existing Will due to events such as a marriage or divorce, the birth of a child, a move to another state, a significant change in financial status, a change in tax laws, or the death of a beneficiary.
You want to add or change beneficiaries.
You want to add or change the nomination of any executor, trustee or guardian.
You did not include Digital Assets in your existing Will but would like to address them now. Digital Assets can include any online accounts or files stored on a computer or server, such as email accounts, blogs, social-networking websites, and photo and document sharing websites. You can use the Codicil to Will to appoint a Digital Executor to handle your Digital Assets. Learn more about Digital Executors.
You want to modify conditions or restrictions on the receipt of a bequest, such as the age at which a child can receive a bequest.
Creating a Codicil to Will is an easy way to make minor updates to your Will without starting over. The Codicil is a separate legal document from your Will, although it is best stored along with it. Adding a child as beneficiary, removing an ex-husband, changing an executor or including a new asset can all be accomplished by using a Codicil. However, when to create a Codicil versus when to draft a new Will differs case-by-case. Contact an attorney if you are unsure of when to use a Codicil, or whether to create a new Complete Will.
