The act of writing between the lines or in the margins of a document to make a correction or to add something that was thought of later. Such an act may leave a question as to whether all the parties to the document agreed to the changes or whether the interlineations were part of the document when it was signed. Legally, it is best for all parties to initial any interlineations or to create a new document and have it signed again.
