Welcome! My goal is to do my very best to understand your situation and to provide a full and complete answer for you.
Good afternoon. Of course you have no legal obligation to help at all. You are within your legal rights to help either daughter alone or disproportionately. It is your money and even if it's in a revocable living trust
, you still have control over your assets. And, you have the right to amend your trust. Since you don't have the money currently to give without directly impacting your own ability to support yourself, if you want to treat them equally, I would suggest you amend the revocable trust to provide that rather than equal distributions of assets from the trust, the daughter that was not recipient of the help now is first entitled to a preferential distribution equal to the amount you gave your other daughter. Then, after that preferential distribution, the remaining assets of the trust would be distributed to them equally.
