Can a will be changed or revoked?
A will can be changed or revoked at any time during the decedent’s remaining life. You would make a change to a codicil and the codicil changes must be witnessed and the same formalities as the original will. I have many people who believe they can just cross something out in a will and initial it, and that’s a codicil, and it’s not. It doesn’t have to be a separate writing, but every change in the will has to be a signature of the decedent and two witness signatures, all done a the same time. You can revoke a will through a writing, signed properly, or you can just physically destroy the will.
