Good afternoon. I am Loren, an Illinois licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
The default, unless otherwise stated, is REVOCABLE trust. An irrevocable trust has to so state and be set up as such. Otherwise, the trust is revocable until the grantor dies.
As the grantor or settlor of a revocable trust, you are free to amend the trust in, pretty much, any way you want, including changing the trustee.
If this were an irrevocable trust you would need the consent of the trustee and beneficiaries, as well as the consent of the court.
Fro a revocable trust, just type up an amendment, sign it and attach it to the existing trust.
