Codicil appointing a substitute guardian

If you want to make a relatively simple and straightforward change to your will, you can use a codicil to do so without having to create a new will.

Use this codicil to appoint a substitute guardian for your children. You might do this if one of your substitute guardians is unable to act as a guardian or if you didn't previously choose a substitute guardian. In all other respects, your will remains the same.

Please note that you cannot use this codicil if you already have 5 or more codicils to your existing will, as at this point we recommend that you make a new will.
