In the event of a divorce, can your spouse get rights to a revocable or irrevocable trust that you have been named the beneficiary of?

If you are the sole trustee AND beneficiary of an irrevocable trust for your benefit, it is possible that the court would invade the trust for your ex.  If you have an independent trustee or co-trustee, this is less likely.   A revocable trust (living trust) is completely open to both marital and other creditors.


Child support can definitely trigger an irrevocable trust invasion.
