Homecodicil To A Will

One way to make changes to a last will, without revoking it entirely, is to make a codicil, which is an amendment to a last will. However, a codicil must be signed and witnessed just like a last will, so it may be easier to make an entirely new last will. Be sure not to make changes to your last will after it has been witnessed and signed. No one likes to think about their own death, but preparing end-of-life documents, such as a last will and testament, can give you great peace of mind now, knowing your wishes will be followed when you're gone.

[date]

Codicil

I, [name], a resident of the County of [county], State of [state], declare that this is the codicil to my last will and testament, which is dated [date original signed] (my “Will”).

I add to or change my Will in the following manner:
[List all specific changes or additions to the original will. Reference each section number of the will and the specific language you will be revising or otherwise affecting. This is where you would include a bequest to support American Battlefield Trust. For suggested bequest language that can assist you, see suggested bequest language.]

Otherwise, I hereby confirm and republish my Will in all respects other than those herein mentioned.

Will

I subscribe my name to this Codicil on this [day, e.g. 1st] day of [month], [year], at [full address where signed], in the presence of [full name of first witness to codicil], [full name of second witness to codicil], and [full name of third witness to codicil, if any], attesting witnesses, who subscribe their names here in my presence.
