Thank you so much for answering me. So if my husband decides

Resolved Question:

Thank you so much for answering me. So if my husband decides to get remarried, the two of them cannot make any changes to our irrevocable trust, entrusted to our children upon our deaths? What about her as his new wife? Can she make any claims upon his death? Or any time?

That is correct. The terms of the irrevocable trust will continue

What about her as his new wife? Can she make any claims upon his death? Or any time?
The new wife may have a claim against the estate of your husband, the assets of your husband and the earnings of your husband. The assets in an irrevocable trust belong to the trust and not to your husband.
