§ 35-15-508. Removal or replacement power over trustee or other fiduciary not reachable by holder's creditors -- Interests of beneficiary who is also a trustee or other fiduciary not reachable.
(a) No creditor or assignee of a beneficiary shall have the power to reach an interest of a beneficiary or any other person who holds an unconditional or conditional removal or replacement power over a trustee or other fiduciary.

(b) Subject to § 35-15-504(b)(3):
(1) No creditor or assignee of a beneficiary may reach an interest of a beneficiary who is also a trustee, cotrustee or other fiduciary, or otherwise compel a distribution because the beneficiary is then serving as a trustee, cotrustee or other fiduciary; and
(2) No court may foreclose against a beneficiary's interest described in subdivision (b)(1).
