Baltimore, Maryland Estate Planning Attorney: Can a Will be Changed or Modified Years After it Was Created?, Maryland Estate Planning Lawyer Attorney Baltimore Maryland Wills TrustsYou can change your will at any time by signing an amendment known as a “codicil” or by having a new will prepared. Either a codicil or a new will must be executed with the same formal requirements under Maryland law as the original will. You should not attempt to change your existing will by crossing out sections and writing on the old will. You should consult an attorney to make sure your amendments comply with Maryland law. In some instances it is actually less expensive and easier to have a new will written and filed with the county in which you live.
