If a person is facing imminent death and they wish to make changes to their will, a deathbed will may be used. However, they may be risky because they are often prepared and executed rapidly and may contain errors. Also, techniques that were developed when creating your will to avoid things like property estate taxes, may be forgotten and therefore cause your assets to be highly taxed. Also, they are the most highly challenged type of will because oftentimes the creation of a new will in such a late time can incite problems with beneficiaries who challenge it on the grounds of the competency of the person facing an imminent death.
