Michigan Trust Code

The Michigan Trust Code

The Estates and Protected Individuals Code (EPIC) became effective in Michigan in 2000, and was intended to modernize existing probate and trust laws. EPIC was updated in 2010 with the introduction of the Michigan Trust Code (MTC). The MTC is the first comprehensive law dealing specifically with trusts in Michigan history. Highlights of the MTC include:

  • Allows for having a trust protector to assist in overseeing the trust
  • Extends the availability of In Terrorem or No Contest Clauses to trusts
  • Consolidates the standard of capacity required to make a trust and a will
  • Confirms the time frame within which an individual must pursue a challenge to the validity of a trust
