What about creating a new Trust?

You can create a Revocable Living Trust through Trust & Will even if you currently have another Trust. Note that creating a new Trust does not automatically replace or eliminate the existing one; you can technically have two separate Trusts.

Can I terminate or replace my old Trust?

  • Terminating a Revocable Trust: If allowed by the terms of your old Trust, you can terminate or revoke it to only maintain the new Trust. This involves moving assets from the old Trust to the new one.
  • Handling an Irrevocable Trust: If the assets are in an Irrevocable Trust, transferring them can be more complex and might require additional legal steps. Please be aware that Trust & Will does not offer Irrevocable Trusts or updates to Irrevocable Trusts.
