No, you cannot create a codicil to an existing Will using our system. Codicils are rarely used these days. They were popular back in the day before computers and printers because they saved the effort of re-typing or writing a new Will. You would just attach a piece of paper to the Will, which said words to the effect of "for clause 3, instead of John Smith being the Executor, I would like James Brown to be the Executor".
Using our system, we would encourage you to login to your account, jump to the section that you wish to change and then print out a new document. A codicil must be signed in the presence of two witnesses in the same way as a new Will, so there is no shortcut in preparing a codicil, but they can cause a great deal of confusion.
If you need a new Will, it only takes about 20 minutes to prepare a Will using our service.
