What happens if I hand write changes on my Will?

You should never make handwritten changes to your Will. Every provision of your Will must be signed by you in front of two witnesses. That refers to the Will as a whole and any small changes you make. Crossing out provisions of a will are generally considered to be an act of revocation.
