What is a Codicil?
A codicil is a document that can be attached to your completed Will, whereby it amends, rather than replaces, a small provision in the drafted Will. A small provision may mean changing the executor or some or all of the gifts under the Will. The same legal requirements necessary in a Will must also be adhered to in a codicil. Sometimes people believe that a codicil is the right document for their changed wishes, however the changes desired oftentimes are complex and naturally would change the entire structure of the Will. A skilled Wills and Estates Lawyer can properly decipher whether your changes are minor enough to not risk creating confusion or contradiction in your original Will.
At Scardicchio Law Office Professional Corporation, our Wills and Estates Lawyers have the skills and knowledge to help you secure your loved one's future with a properly drafted Codicil. Call us to discuss your plans. We are here to help.
