Remember that a Living Trust Amendment should only be used to make one or a few minor amendments. If multiple amendments are necessary or if the changes are significant (or if you are amending amendments) it’s best to talk to an attorney about creating an Amendment and Restatement of Trust document. An Amendment and Restatement document means that you avoid having to transfer property into an entirely new trust – the original trust is simply ‘restated’ with revisions.
If you want to completely revoke a trust (because you’ve changed your mind about using a trust, or want to move from a regular Living Trust to a Joint Living Trust, for example) you can use a Living Trust Revocation document.
