QUESTION

How can I revise my will?

 

ANSWER

Wills remain valid forever, unless a new will is written. You can add a “codicil” to an existing will, to change or add something to it. Codicils must meet the same legal requirements for language as the original will. Generally, a will cannot legally be revised without the use of a codicil.
