Trust Act 2013 Changes to the Delaware Code

On August 6, 2013, Delaware Governor Jack Markell signed Trust Act 2013 into law, effective immediately upon signing. Trust Act 2013 provides advancements in Delaware trust law that will provide settlors, beneficiaries and fiduciaries of trusts with more tools and greater flexibility to accomplish their various objectives including, most importantly, a statute that permits the use of “nonjudicial settlement agreements” in Delaware.
