Though a trust might be an Irrevocable Trust, the facts and circumstances might allow for modification. A Trust Reformation refers to the process of making a change to an Irrevocable Trust.
Irrevocable Trusts are excellent planning tools providing protection from taxes, creditors, and greedy son-in-laws. But, even the best planned Trust might run into unpredicted problems. Tax laws change, grandchildren move to unexpected locations, and the financial world evolves. Over time, making changes to an Irrevocable Trust might benefit the then-living beneficiaries.
Traditionally, making changes to an Irrevocable Trust was nearly impossible. But, the trend has been to make these changes easier. A Trust Reformation might require a court’s approval, but many states have adopted rules that allow certain Trust Reformations without court approval.
The rules surrounding Trust Reformation are evolving and changing if you have an Irrevocable Trust that would benefit from a change, bring it to us for a review. The change might be easier than you think.

Like another reviewer, I contacted Peter through his website using the free consultation link, for a question regarding PA inheritance taxes. The question was quite technical and difficult to explain, and the answer was nowhere to be found on the web. Peter grasped precisely what I was asking, and provided a clear, helpful response (with a touch of humor) the very next day.
Mr. Klenk, quickly understood the circumstances presented and provided clear and concise advice. This advice provided me with the information I required to progress the case to my advantage.
Peter explained things in a way that was easy to understand. Everything was done in the time frame he said it. Could not have been better!
Klenk Law is an exceptional practice. Their fine lawyers and staff team up to produce excellent results for their clients. They excel at explaining the often cryptic laws and policies that govern estate planning right down to the complexities of the various "trust" frameworks. Peter himself manages each client together with his great team, and he has a rare quality to be both a walking encyclopedia of planning minutia and also one of the most likable lawyers I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. He is truly generous in intellect and in his personal approach to getting the "big picture" for complex family structures. I trust him implicitly to help me make the right choices for the future. In short, Klenk Law is a gem of a firm.
Peter and his associates made things easy for us.
