Are Irrevocable Trusts Really Irrevocable

Presented by Al W. King, III, JD, LL.M., AEP, TEP


The answer to this question has never been more important as a result of powerful population trends, an uncertain economic, political and tax future, changing family situations, a desire to promote family values as well as a litigious society etc... This session will discuss the most important ways irrevocable trusts can be modernized such as judicial and non-judicial reformations and modifications, restatements, and decanting. Pre-mortem validations, other key statutes, cases, rulings as well as important dos and don’ts will be discussed. Trust reformations and modifications have become one of the most important estate planning tools providing families with the flexibility they desire and need.


The LUNCHEON meeting will be held at Bascom's Chop House located at 3665 Ulmerton Road, Clearwater.

The meeting will begin promptly at Noon with LUNCH and the opportunity to network at 11:30 a.m.

Advance reservations are required.

This is a joint meeting with the Suncoast Estate Planning Council.
