What is a codicil?

A codicil is a legal document that amends your existing Will without revoking the Will in its entirety. Codicils can be used to an existing will provision, a new will provision, or delete an existing will provision. Usually, if the changes someone wants to make to their will are relatively minor (for example, changing executors), a codicil is a quick, inexpensive way to amend the Will without re-drafting the entire document.
