Can I amend my Will with a Codicil in Mississippi?

Yes, a codicil can be used to amend your Will in Mississippi.

A codicil is a written supplement to a person’s will, which must be dated, signed and witnessed under the same legal rules applicable to the making of the original will, and must make some reference to the will it amends. A codicil can add to, subtract from, revoke or modify the terms of the original will.

A codicil is used to avoid rewriting the entire will. A codicil should reference each section number of the will and the specific language that will be affected. It is important that a codicil is as clear and precise as possible to avoid undue complications.
