Yes, it's probably a good idea. Since nothing has to change in the trust in terms of what you plan to leave and to whom -- and assuming that it was made in your current state of residence -- that's a slightly steep fee. But it IS right in line for creating a new RLT, and this lawyer is likely going to have to do the same amount of work to bring yours up to date. I guess, I'd ask for a discount since this is a revision -- but agree to pay if he won't do it. Remember, you want a qualified attorney to do this because you won't be around to fix things if a mistake is made! Before meeting with him do sit down and review your current trust provisions, making sure that you still want to leave the same things to the same people, still want to use the same successor trustee in case both of you are unable to act, and that you don't have new family members -- ie., grandchildren -- whom you want to remember after your death. And that you have titled all your accounts -- investments, homes, etc., in the name of the trust.
