Are Trusts Transferable to Another State?

Q:

My husband and I are considering setting up a trust for our estate. However, we will probably be moving to another state for his job in the next five years. Are trusts transferable to another state or would we have to re-set up everything? 


A:

Trusts are transferrable from state to state, but it always makes sense to have your estate plan reviewed when you move. Lawyers in one state never know what peculiarities about the other state’s laws they may not know.
