Colorado Commission on Uniform State Laws. In 2018, the
general assembly enacted portions of the Uniform Trust Code (UTC) as
the Colorado Uniform Trust Code. Part 5 of the UTC, which relates to
spendthrift provisions in trusts, was not included in the 2018 act. A
spendthrift provision in a trust prevents both voluntary and involuntary
transfer of a trust beneficiary's interest.

The bill enacts part 5 of the UTC, including a number of
Colorado-specific amendments. The bill addresses the validity of
spendthrift provisions and the rights of creditors, both of the settlor and
beneficiaries, to reach a trust to collect a debt. The bill provides certain
exceptions that allow children for whom an order or judgment for child
support has been entered to reach a trust in order to satisfy the child
support order or judgment.
