Making changes to a Will after it is signed can be done, but it is important to understand the legal implications of doing so. Generally, revoking a Will requires the testator (the person who created the Will) to create an entirely new document that explicitly states their intention to revoke their prior document. This new document must then be signed by two witnesses. Additionally, any copies of the original Will should be destroyed in order to ensure that it cannot be used in any way. It is recommended that you consult a lawyer or other legal professional before making any changes to your Will.
