Writing a New Will
By Melissa Broad, Contributing Writer.
Making a new will document is typically the best option if you want to make relatively big changes.
The process is just like writing your will for the first time, but there are a few extra things you need to make sure of:
Ensure the new will clearly states that it revokes any older wills and/or codicils.
If you possess assets internationally and have a corresponding will, ensure the new one does not revoke that other will.
Destroy the old original will and any of its copies – either by tearing it up, shredding or burning it. Otherwise, duplicates could be found and it may not be clear which your executor should follow.
Tell your executor where the new will document is so they can find it when the time arises.
