(760 ILCS 3/503)
Exceptions to spendthrift provision.
(a) In this Section, "child" includes any person for whom an order or judgment for child support has been entered in this or another state.
(b) A spendthrift provision is unenforceable against:
(1) a beneficiary's child, spouse, or former spouse
who has a judgment or court order against the beneficiary for child support obligations owed by the beneficiary as provided in the Income Withholding for Support Act, the Non-Support Punishment Act, the Illinois Parentage Act of 2015, the Illinois Marriage and Dissolution of Marriage Act, and similar provisions of other Acts that provide for the support of a child;
(2) a judgment creditor who has provided services
for the protection of a beneficiary's interest in the trust; and
(3) a claim of this State or the United States to
the extent a statute of this State or federal law so provides.
(c) Except as otherwise provided in this subsection and in Section 504, a claimant against which a spendthrift provision cannot be enforced may obtain from a court an order attaching present or future distributions to or for the benefit of the beneficiary. The court may limit the award to such relief as is appropriate under the circumstances. Notwithstanding this subsection, the remedies provided in this subsection apply to a claim for unpaid child support obligations by a beneficiary's child, spouse, former spouse, judgment creditor, or claim described in subsection (b) only as a last resort upon an initial showing that traditional methods of enforcing the claim are insufficient.
