Wills, Trusts, and Estates
A spendthrift trust is one where the beneficiary is prohibited from transferring or otherwise alienating his beneficial interest voluntarily or involuntarily. UTC § 502.
Because the interest cannot be transferred, a creditor cannot get the trust assets until the beneficiary actually gets the money. He cannot attached to the trust with a Drogo order.
Every trust should have a spendthrift provision.
A spendthrift provision cannot be enforced against child support or alimony. UTC § 503.
