Description:  This form is a Codicil to amend your Last Will and Testament. It is guaranteed compliant with Washington law. A Codicil is a document that amends or supplements your existing Last Will and Testament. The advantage to using a Codicil to change your Will is that it allows you to make minor changes to your Will while still keeping your original Will in full force and effect, except for the changes expressly stated in your Codicil. This Codicil form provides you the opportunity to make the five (5) most common amendments and/or supplements to your Last Will.

Specifically, using this form, you can:

  • Acknowledge and provide for children born after the execution of your Will;
  • Revoke the appointment of the person currently named as the Executor of your Will and appoint a new Executor;
  • Revoke certain specific bequests currently contained in your Will that you no longer wish to make;
  • Add additional specific bequests not currently contained in your Will that you now wish to make; and
  • Revoke the designation of the person currently named as the Beneficiary of the rest and remainder of your estate and appoint a new Beneficiary.

This Codicil form enables you to make as many or as few of the above mentioned amendments and/or supplements to your Will as you choose. Additionally, this Codicil provides space allowing you to amend your Will in accordance with your specific wishes regarding any other matters not expressly presented as options listed above.  You will also receive the appropriate Witness and Notarial Statements required in the State of Washington.
