What Types of Trusts Can Be Modified?


There are several different types of trusts that can be modified or amended through the courts including:

  • A special needs trust
  • Asset protection trust
  • Charitable trust
  • Irrevocable trust

If the trust documentation limits the ability to modify or amend a trust or the person allowed to amend or modify the trust is unavailable or incapacitated, the court may be able to order the modification or amendment of the trust. Courts will allow a trust to be modified if the person who created the trust ("settlor") and all the beneficiaries of the trust agree to the modification.

What If the Settlor Is Deceased?

If the settlor is deceased or is unable to grant consent, modifications to a trust are more complicated. In these circumstances, courts will generally not approve a modification of a trust if the change would be contrary to a material purpose of the settlor. However, courts are more likely to grant modification of a trust under changed circumstances. Our Colorado probate attorneys will help you evaluate your options if you are considering modifying or amending a trust. We are readily available to answer any questions you may have about modifications and amendments.
