Trust and Will Modification

It is sometimes possible to change the terms of an irrevocable trust depending upon the terms of the trust and the circumstances of the trust beneficiaries.  The Florida Trust Code enacted in 2007 makes certain trust modifications possible that would not have been possible before its enactment.  Carol has many years of experience in petitioning the court to change the terms of a trust when the terms of the trust no longer suit the present situation. And, as of July 1, 2011, it is now possible under certain circumstances to change the terms of a Will.

In some cases, it is possible to modify an irrevocable trust without going to court. Carol can review your trust and advise you as to the possibilities of changing its terms.
