If you want to change your will, in many instances, all we need to do is to draw an amendment otherwise known as the codicil, which is not a big deal. In fact, the most involved part of the process is to make sure that it’s properly executed and by that, I mean in the same manner and with the same formalities with which you drew your original will. If however, after discussing the matter with us, we realize that there are several changes that are either necessary or appropriate or just because you want to make them, we may recommend, and it may be cheaper and easier, to simply redraft the will. Again, that’s something we’ll decide and guide you on after we have had the opportunity to discuss that with you, so contact us to discuss your individual situation.
