Our mothers trust says that I am the first trustee, my brother is the second trustee. An addendum was made to section 2. Does The addendum change the whole trust or just that section?
Typically amendments only change a specific section or sections. However, one can also execute a complete trust amendment which rewrites the entire trust. You should read the document and see if it applies to the while trust or a specific section(s).
The information provided herein is not, nor is it intended to be, legal advice. It is for informational purposes only. No attorney-client relationship has been created and we have no obligations to you or your case.
If the addendum was made to section 2, then only section 2 (not the entire trust) would be affected by the addendum.
Generally an amendment to a trust will specify exactly what section is being amended and the remainder of the trust will remain "as is." The exception to this is a "restated" amendment which is usually a term used to describe an amendment that amends the trust in its entirety.
