From time to time, it is important to review the document to be sure everything is current. Things that can affect the distribution include:
> Marriage, separation or divorce
> Birth of a child or grandchild
> Death of an executor, trustee, beneficiary, custodian or guardian
> Significant change in assets
> Change of residency or citizenship
There are two ways to change a Will. The first is a Codicil. That is a legal term for an amendment to the Will. If the changes are numerous or complex, it is better to simply execute an entirely new Will.
