    Answered . Yes. Even if you were receiving your "inheritance" as the beneficiary of a trust with a spendthrift provision designed to protect the assets from your creditors, it could be invaded to pay your support obligation (please see the link below). If you cannot afford your support obligation at its current level you may be able to seek a modification of the support order. Please remember that despite any hard feelings that you may have towards the other parent a child has the right to be supported by both parents.
