Title 12 - Decedents' Estates and Fiduciary Relations
§ 4522. Effect on existing custodianships.

Universal Citation: 12 DE Code § 4522 (2018)

(a) Any transfer of custodial property, as now defined in this chapter, made before June 26, 1996, is validated notwithstanding that there was no specific authority in the Delaware Uniform Gifts to Minors Act for the coverage of custodial property of that kind or for a transfer from that source at the time the transfer was made.

(b) This chapter applies to all transfers made before June 26, 1996, in a manner and form prescribed in the Delaware Uniform Gifts to Minors Act, except insofar as the application impairs constitutionally vested rights or extends the duration of custodianships in existence on June 26, 1996.

(c) Sections 4501 and 4520 of this title with respect to the age of a minor for whom custodial property is held under this chapter do not apply to custodial property held in a custodianship that terminated because of the minor's attainment of the age of 18 after January 1, 1975, and before June 26, 1996.
