Witnesses or notary?

San Jose, CA |

I want to amend my revocable trust. The amendment would create a testamentary trust. Does the amendment need to be witnessed by two witnesses, like a will, or does it just require a notary, since it’s a trust?

You did not answer my question at all.

I suggest that you go to the lawyer that created your trust originally. Amending it will probably not cost very much, and a trust is something you need to have done right, and not something you want to be guessing about.

You should execute your amended revocable living trust before a notary public, in the same manner you executed the origingal trust. Your attorney should be able to guide you through this process.
