Revise a Revocable Trust

Step 1

Read the original trust document to see if there are any special provisions describing or restricting how and when the trust can be revised.

Step 2

Follow the trust document procedures for revising the trust, if your trust document actually contains terms relative to revision.

Step 3

Prepare a document title "Amendment to (the Name of Your Living Trust)" and in this document provide details on how you want the trust to be revised.

Step 4

Sign the trust amendment form and have your signature notarized by a notary public.

Step 5

Attach the signed and notarized trust amendment form to your original trust document.
