Hi this is Laura Turner and today I'm going to talk with you about how to write a codicil. A codicil is a amendment to your will, that is going to be put in at the end of your document. So you are going to actually have to go and talk to your attorney in order to get the right format for a codicil but I do have an example right here. You are going to want to make this as easy and painless as possible for you and your family so before you make any amendments to your will, always consult your family members before you do anything. That's my opinion anyway. So in your codicil you are going to take your name, resident of United States, state of blank, and the original date that you made this amendment. And then you are going to add your change and you are going to list and be as clear and precise as possible with your change in your codicil to your will. And then you are actually going to have to sign it. And hopefully you will people who are willing to go with you who will be witnesses to this codicil signing and will sign along side with you. And just make sure every thing is in its legal proper place and you will have your codicil made.
