When lawyers use the terms “revocable” and “living” when referring to a trust, they’re doing so because those words have specific meaning in the law. A revocable living trust is “revocable” because you, as the person who creates the trust, have the right to revoke or modify its terms as at any time. On the other hand, if you were to create an irrevocable trust, you cannot change or revoke the trust terms later.
