Review List

This review list is provided to inform you about this document and assist you in its preparation.  This is a standard codicil form in which you can enter the changes you wish made to your will.  Unless very simple changes, you are advised that revoking your last will and testament and incorporating your changes into a new will and testament may be easier in the long run for your heirs.  Codicils can be separated from the original will; add expense on many occasions to administrate, in the scope of “one more thing” to discuss and for attorneys to expend billable hours on.

1. Make multiple copies.  Be sure to get three witnesses and a notary to vouch for the signatures.  Keep a copy with your last will and testament in all places you have that placed.
