Document Overview

A codicil has to meet the formal requirements. To be legally valid the codicil document must be signed and executed in front of witnesses in the same way as for a will. Once completed the codicil is kept with that will.

It is recommended that the codicil can only be used when the change is minor and straightforward. A written record can help protect the parties to a will if any questions or legal issues arise regarding the amendments to the will.

  • You would like to confirm some of the contents of an earlier will;
  • You would like to alter or add additional clauses to the will;
  • You want to follow all the proper processes to make legal amendments to the will; and
  • You would like to have a record of the amendments of a will in the event of any legal action.

  • Confirm the contexts of an earlier will;
