About this template
The Restatement of Revocable Trust Contract (Illinois) legal template is a document that outlines the essential clauses and provisions of a revocable trust agreement in the state of Illinois. A revocable trust, often referred to as a living trust, is a flexible and widely-used estate planning tool that allows individuals (known as grantors or settlors) to transfer assets into a trust during their lifetime, specifying how those assets should be managed and distributed upon their death or incapacity.

This template serves as a comprehensive guide, presenting a restated version of an existing revocable trust contract specific to Illinois law. The purpose of restating the contract is to provide a clear and updated version of the trust, taking into account any amendments made over time, while ensuring compliance with the state's legal requirements. By restating the trust, all parties involved can have a consolidated document that accurately reflects the original terms and modifications.

The template covers various important provisions, including but not limited to:

1. Identification of grantor(s) and trustee(s): This section provides details about the individual(s) creating the trust, as well as the person(s) or entity responsible for managing and distributing the trust assets.

2. Trust property and assets: Here, the template outlines the assets that have been transferred into the trust, such as real estate, investments, bank accounts, or personal property.

3. Powers and limitations of the trustee: This section describes the powers granted to the trustee, which may include investment decisions, distribution of income or principal, or the ability to make changes to the trust as necessary. Additionally, any limitations or restrictions on the trustee's authority may be defined.

4. Beneficiaries and distribution of assets: The template includes provisions on how the trust property will be allocated and distributed among the beneficiaries, including contingent beneficiaries in case of a beneficiary's death.

5. Trust administration and termination: This section outlines the procedures for managing the trust, including accounting, record-keeping, and provisions for potential termination of the trust.

It is important to note that this template should be customized to reflect the specific details and intentions of the parties involved. As each trust is unique, legal advice from an attorney familiar with Illinois trust law is strongly recommended when utilizing this template.
