Might as well weigh in here... CA is a community property state whereas Florida is not. This may or may not affect your situation.

While there is a rule of thumb that a trust is honored in another state if it is valid in it's state of origin, this is not always the case.

Also is it a revocable living trust or an irrevocable trust? It is probably the former as most folks in CA use them to avoid probate costs, especially on real estate.

As mentioned hereinabove trusts and wills are different animals.

IMHO don't be pennywise and pound foolish. If you plan to permanently relocate to Florida find a reputable and capable local estate/probate lawyer.
