Is there anywhere you can go to ask.

Is there anywhere you can go to ask a general law question.  My question is research if you place private shares into trust for someone how do you revoke that trust. or can you.
thanks

I don't know any place you could go to answer that question directly, except hiring a trust and estates lawyer. A law librarian could help you find some sources that could help you answer the question.

My advice as to the answer would be to check the trust instrument. Trusts can be revocable or irrevocable. Some jurisdictions make you specifically claim the power of revocation in the instrument and others will presume that it is there.

If you can't afford an attorney you may check with your local legal aid group or call your local bar organization.  Most local bars have a pro bono program.
