Wills and Codicils

A Last Will and Testament, also referred to simply as a Will, is a legal document by which a person, called the Testator, names one or more persons, called an Executor, to manage his or her estate, and also provides for the distribution of his or her property at death. A will can also serve to name guardians for children and their property, provide for pets, and decide how debts and taxes will be paid.

A Codicil is an amendment or supplement to a will. In part, it may explain, modify, add to, delete from, alter, or revoke one or more of the provisions of an existing will. A codicil is typically used when a testator wishes to make minor changes in his or her own will.
