So, it is important to ensure that, over time, it remains aligned with your current wishes.

How to Change Your Will
By Codicil :-
A document called a codicil can be executed to make amendments to a previously executed will. Typically attached to the original will, a codicil makes additions to your original will, explaining, modifying, or revoking the will or part of it. Please send us your request in writing with clear instructions and we will assist you with the Codicil.
By drafting a New Will
Should substantial changes be required to be made to the original will, it is be better to draft a new will.This would help to provide clarity on how you now want your property to be distributed upon your death, instead of having to refer to separate documents and potentially getting confused on what your wishes are.
If a new will is drafted, the previous will should be torn up or shredded to avoid confusion.
