What Can Be Changed in a Trust Amendment?

Trust amendments are for making minimal changes to the trust. This includes changes such as updating the name of the Successor Trustee and adding or removing specific bequests. If an individual wishes to make changes such as adding or removing beneficiaries, changing distributions of assets, then a Trust Restatement is required.

If you end up making multiple amendments over time, you have the option of consolidating all your updates into a complete amendment, which will be helpful to your Successor Trustee in the future. All the updates will be available in one document instead of separate ones.

Do You Have an A-B Trust?

A-B trusts are trusts that are shared by married couples and divided upon the death of one of spouses. The beneficiaries named by each spouse are people that are not the other spouse. These trusts are often utilized by couples who seek to reduce the taxes on their estate. However, if your A-B trust was drafted before 2012, it may not be suitable for the current laws. Due to changes in estate planning laws, the majority of the United States population is no longer required to pay any taxes on estates. With these changes in mind, amending your A-B trust may be in your best interest. We urge you to reach out to our Walnut Creek trust amendment lawyer to discuss your options.
