Trusts and divorce: spouse-proof provisions

A client created a living trust leaving all of his assets to his son. After the client’s death the son’s wife sued for divorce. The wife knew about the husband’s inheritance and went after half, claiming it to be marital property. The claim was rejected by the court because Mr. Kriger included spouse proof provisions in the trust. The son came to Mr. Kriger to do his own trust and included the same spouse proof provisions for his children. The result is that two generations of hard earned money will stay in that family blood line and avoid diversion because of a failed marriage.
