"If I have a trust do I need a will?"

Trusts can either be revocable or irrevocable. Each trust generally sets forth a provision which enables the Trustor to revoke the trust on the happening of one or more events. In a Revocable Trust, this revocation can occur at the will of the Trustor. Anytime the Trustor decides to revoke the Trust, he/she can.

If you have provided for a revocable trust, the trust can be revoked at any time. This revocation should be in writing and should be executed in the same manner as the trust was executed originally. There should be a notary attestation, just as in the original trust document.
