Yes, revocable trusts (and amendments thereto) for Florida residents must be executed with the same formalities as a Will. Two witnesses are required, and a self-proving affidavit signed by a notary should be used. I recommend using an estate planning attorney to ensure that the amendment is done correctly in all respects.
Any amendment or restatement of a trust must be executed by will formalities, i.e., the settlor must sign in the presence of two witnesses who also sign in the presence of each other. Personally, I also have a self-proving affidavit signed, witnessed and notarized to protect the instrument against challenge down the road when witnesses may no longer be available. Have an attorney draft the amendment for you and get it executed properly.
