Q: My husband and I want to create a trust, but we aren’t sure if we want more kids. If we create a trust, will we have to change it if we have more children?

A: No, your trust can be created to include any children you have now and any children that you may have in the future. Amending your trust in the future is an option if you want to change any of its provisions, but you can rest assured that it can be created initially so that all of your present and future children can be included and treated equally. You will not need to update it for the sole purpose of adding children born or adopted after it is created.
