Trust Amendment Details

If you're like most people, the words "estate planning" probably don't evoke feelings of excitement. But trust amendment forms don't have to be dry and boring - in fact, they can be a very important part of your estate planning process.

If you're considering making changes to your trust, here's what you need to know. If you already have a trust but want to change it due to a recent life event such as marriage or divorce, adding or removing a beneficiary, or changing the executor, you'll need to fill out a trust amendment form.

Revocable Living Trust Amendment

Unlike a Will, a living trust is controlled by contract law rather than by the probate code under state law. An amendment to a Revocable Living Trust must be in writing, but it does not need to be witnessed. It does not need to be notarized. It does need to be signed by the Grantors of the Trust and the Trustees of the Trust since they are both parties to the Trust Agreement. In most cases, with a Revocable Living Trust, these are the same people.

After the Revocable Living Trust has been signed, the original should be placed with your other legal documents in a safety deposit box or a fire-proof cabinet and a copy put in your Document Portfolio.

The following pages contain a sample filled-out Revocable Living Trust Amendment form which will guide you on how to complete the form, and a blank Amendment for you to complete.
