Codicil

An addition or amendment to a will.

It is important that a will, once made, is reviewed from time to time, as many things can change from the time someone makes their will until the time they die.

Changes such as marriage, separation or divorce, or becoming a parent  may effect the contents of a will.

Changes can be made by making an amendment or an addition or a supplement to the will and these are known as 'codicils'.

The alternative to making an amendment or addition by codicil is to make a new will.
