NRS 163.5559
Claims of creditors against settlor.


Except as otherwise provided in subsection 2, a creditor of a settlor may not seek to satisfy a claim against the settlor from the assets of a trust if the settlor’s sole interest in the trust is the existence of a discretionary power granted to a person other than the settlor by the terms of the trust or by operation of law or to reimburse the settlor for any tax on trust income or principal which is payable by the settlor under the law imposing such tax.


The provisions of subsection 1 do not apply to trust property transferred by the settlor to the extent a creditor can prove the transfer was fraudulent pursuant to chapter 112 of NRS or was otherwise wrongful as to that creditor.


For purposes of this section, a beneficiary of a trust shall be deemed to not be a settlor of a trust because of a lapse, waiver or release of the beneficiary’s right to withdraw part or all of the trust property if the value of the property which could have been withdrawn by exercising the right of withdrawal in any calendar year does not, at the time of the lapse, waiver or release, exceed the greater of the amount provided in 26 U.S.C. § 2041(b)(2), 26 U.S.C. § 2503(b) or 26 U.S.C. § 2514(e), as amended, or any successor provision.
