Trusts

TuckerAllen offers a variety of trust-related services after the death of a Grantor. This includes:

  • Trust amendments, for those who have created a trust and want to make changes to it.
  • Trust administration services, for those who have become a Trustee after a loved one dies.
  • Trust termination and modification services, for those who are a grantor or beneficiary of an irrevocable trust.

Trust Amendments:

  • When your finances and family situation changes, it means that your trust needs to be changed, too.
  • We offer flat rate simple trust amendments (like changing your successor trustee or age of inheritance) for $350.
  • More extensive changes are at an hourly rate, so you only pay for the changes that you need.
  • We also offer full restatements (i.e. a complete re-write) of your trust for the flat rate fee of $1200, or $700 if your trust was created by TuckerAllen.

Trust Administration

  • Losing a loved one is difficult and having to administer their Trust on top of that can be overwhelming. Let one of our experienced attorneys guide you through the trust administration process.
  • As Trustee, you must comply with Missouri law requirements about notification and reporting while protecting yourself from lawsuits and ensuring your loved one’s legacy.
  • We specialize in trust administration, which means that we can help make the process as predictable, fast, and efficient as possible. We have a network of professionals ready to help you make this process as easy as possible so that you can get back to what is most important to you.
  • We charge an hourly rate for this service, so you are only paying for the amount of help you need and nothing more.

Trust Termination or Modification:

  • There are a variety of reasons why people want to revoke or terminate trusts. These typically include:
    • You set up an irrevocable trust, but you to get rid of it and get those assets back.
    • You inherited a trust from a relative and you want to change the terms or get your money out sooner than it allows.
  • The solutions to these problems depend upon the exact terms of your trust and your rights as Grantor or beneficiary. We will review your documents and let you know about any paths forward, which may include a simple revocation and consents from beneficiaries, decanting, or a petition to terminate the trust in court.
  • Because this field is so highly specialized to the unique circumstances of our clients, we are unable to offer a flat rate fee for this service. Our experienced attorneys will work with you to determine the best path forward and project an estimate of costs involved.
