Updating Your Living Trust
Why should you consider updating your living trust every 2 to 3 years?
Are you updating your living trust every 2 to 3 years? Trusts are powerful estate planning instruments that can help you protect and preserve your assets, provide for your loved ones, give to worthy causes and avoid unnecessary taxes. It is important for trusts to be funded adequately, organized properly and administered responsibly. Our firm can help you make sure your trusts meet your needs and the needs of those you care about.
Some of our clients need to create new revocable or irrevocable trusts. You may need to update your living trusts because: 1) their needs have changed; 2) their existing trusts are missing something important; and/or 3) the law has changed in a way that impacts their trusts.

At the law firm of Janathan L. Allen, APC, our lawyers work strategically with an international client base to establish new trusts and refine and update your living trust. Our estate planning and administration experience allows us to answer even the most complex questions about:
