If I would like to revise my Will, is it nessary that I use an attorney?

It is a pretty simple one. May I just make the changes?

Assuming your will was a drafted document by an attorney or otherwise, then any amendments must be in the same format regardless how small the change is as you state. Don't be cheap here, as your small saving may end up being a malpractice against yourself even destroying legally the original document.

you have to observe certain reuirements when making a will.  just changing them on the document would not be sufficient.  a simple will should just be revoked and anew will made. it would not cost much for a lawyer to do it
