When it’s time to update your will, you don’t have to start from scratch. You can use a codicil, an addition or supplement that explains or modifies your existing will.
This example codicil form is for educational purposes only and does not constitute legal advice. It is recommended that you consult a qualified attorney, licensed in your state, to ensure that this form meets all legal requirements for your state.
The codicil, to be valid, must be signed in the presence of witnesses, and the original placed with your other valuable papers. A copy can go to your lawyer and a copy to Ocean Conservancy.
