You may remove a beneficiary from an existing will by executing a Codicil.
A codicil is a document that amends, rather than replaces, a previously executed will. Amendments made by a codicil may add or revoke small provisions (e.g., changing executors), or may completely change the majority, or all, of the gifts under the will. Each codicil must conform to the same legal requirements as the original will. In other words, it must be witnessed the same way a will would be to be considered valid.
