You can modify your will without rewriting it entirely through an amendment called a “codicil.” Codicils must be signed in the presence of witnesses and should be kept with the original will.
To modify your will by codicil to benefit Catholic Extension, please consider sharing the following language with your attorney:
In all other respects I ratify and confirm all of the provision of my said last Will and Testament dated on the _________ day of ______________, 20__
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I sign, publish and declare this instrument to be a Codicil to my last Will and Testament in the presence of the persons witnessing said Codicil at my request this _____ day of ___________, 20___.
Please consult an attorney who is familiar with the estate laws of the state where you live. The information presented above is not intended as legal advice.
