Former Spouse Had no Standing over Trust Income

The former wife of the income beneficiary of an irrevocable inter vivos qualified terminable interest property (QTIP) trust had no standing to object to the trustee’s failure to collect income of the trust even though (a) the former wife would become the income beneficiary following her former husband’s death and (b) the arbitration award that divided their marital property following their divorce directed the former husband to pay to his former wife half of the income from the trust, the trust having a spendthrift clause.   In re: Rosemary C. Ford Inter Vivos QTIP Trust, 176 A. 3d 992, 2017 PA Super 400 (12/18/2017) (one judge concurring in the result).
