I am expecting a new child. Should I amend my existing Living Trust?

If our law firm prepared your Living Trust, and if you indicated that you wanted to distribute your assets to your children equally, we always refer to unborn children. This means that future children will automatically be included as equal beneficiaries, and so it is not required to update the trust for this purpose.

However, given such an important life event, we do think it merits an Amendment in order to list new children in the ‘family information’ section of the trust.
