    Can an executor of will change the will without notifying the other parties? The person that the will was created for is 100 years old. If this is correct can any of the parties involved change the will.

    Can you give more detail?
    Is the testator(will writer) still alive?

    She is still alive 1 week to 100. So you are saying that anybody can change her will without notifying the other members. What is the use of creating a will???????????

    No I didn't say that.
    Nobody can change someone else's will.
    In special cases like incapacitation the Courts can write a new will or after you die the Courts can amend your will.
    The executor named in a will has no powers until the testator dies.

    What makes you think this has happened?
