I found an amendment to my dads trust that was notarized by a Commissioner Of Deeds. Does this mean that it was registered somewhere? I have the original notarized copy. Would that mean the amendment was never submitted? Also, does a trust amendment need to be submitted to the attorney who drafted the original trust to be valid, or can it just be presented after the grantor dies as a challenge? Would someone please be kind enough to clarify this. Thanks!Thank you Jayson. No change to the deed was registered but I guess it doesn't have to be. I read online that any amendment has to be submitted to the trustee, and I know it wasn't. An amendment can still be valid if it wasn't? I'm just afraid a family member got my dad to amend his trust and I wouldn't find out about it until his death.
