Can I add a page to my will without having it redone?

There are items that I want to go solely to my son that was left out.

You could add a "codicil," which is an amendment of your Will. It should be executed with the same formalities as the original Will was.

No. Making any changes to your will could cause it to be revoke. Mr. Frederick is correct you would need to have a codicil to your will prepared or a new will.
