Wills And Codicils 101 | eberechi may okoh

 Lawyer: Have you written a Will?

Client: Nope, not ready to die yet.

A Will is a testamentary deposition of a person’s assets, and in some cases, liabilities. Simply put, a Will is a document a person prepares to communicate how he/she will want his/her estate distributed after death. Being ambulatory, it only takes effect after the death of the testator (maker of the Will). A Codicil on the other hand is a document supplemental to a Will in which a testator makes further provisions for his/her estate. It may be used to distribute assets to which the testator got entitled after executing his/her Will, revoke gifts given in the Will, appoint new executors to replace previously appointed executors who may be unable to act, or such other supplemental issues that may arise after the execution of the Will.
