Florida Trust Amendment vs. Trust Revocation-What’s the Difference?

post about Florida Trust Amendment vs. Trust Revocation-What’s the Difference?

Most people create (as they should!) more than one will during our lifetimes: circumstances change, and ourestate planning West Palm Beach needs to change, too.

Like a will, a living trust can be altered whenever you wish. One of the most attractive features of a revocable living trust Florida is its flexibility:

You can change its terms, or end it altogether, at any time. If you created a shared trust with your spouse, either of you can revoke it.

If, however, you want to change any trust provisions–for example, change a beneficiary ortrustee–both of you must agree in writing.

Here are some examples of when you might consider amending, or revoking, a trust:

You may need to amend your Florida Trust if…

  • You get married.
  • You have a child.
  • You add valuable property to the trust.
  • You change your mind about whom you want to inherit certain items of trust property Palm Beach Gardens or whom you want to serve as successor trustee.
  • You move to a state with different laws about marital property or property management for young beneficiaries.
  • Your spouse dies.
  • A major beneficiary dies.

You may need to revoke your Florida Trust if…

  • You want to make extensive, possibly confusing revisions.
  • You get divorced.
