Trust administered under laws of another state or foreign jurisdiction.


A trust administered under the laws of another state, or under the laws of a foreign jurisdiction, is a spendthrift trust pursuant to this chapter if:

For purposes of NRS 166.170, if the domicile of an existing trust is transferred from another state or from a foreign jurisdiction to this State and the laws of the other state or jurisdiction are similar to the provisions of this chapter, the transfer shall be deemed to have occurred:


On the date on which the settlor of the trust transferred assets into the trust if the applicable law of the trust has at all times been substantially similar to the provisions of this chapter; or
