Thought of the Day 462

Building flexibility into your estate plan involves considering the use of an independent special trustee provision.  Who will make extraordinary or momentous decisions in the event of changed or special circumstances?  Such decisions should be made by an independent fiduciary who stands at somewhat arms length from the trust and situation.  What are these decisions that might arise?  Treating the share of a beneficiary as special or supplemental needs instead of general needs, resolving problems without court involvement, decanting (changing an old trust into a new trust), changing the location or state law of a trust, to name a few.
