LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 513, as introduced, Gallagher. The Uniform Voidable Transactions Act.
Existing law, the Uniform Voidable Transactions Act, generally establishes the conditions under which a transfer made or obligation incurred by a debtor is voidable as to a creditor, and sets forth the remedies of a creditor with respect to a voidable transfer or obligation. Existing law specifies that a claim under the act is governed by the local law of the jurisdiction in which the debtor is located when the transfer is made or the obligation is incurred. Existing law specifies, for purposes of these provisions, that a debtor’s location, if the debtor is an individual, is located at the individual’s principal residence.
This bill would instead provide that a debtor’s location, if the debtor is an individual, is the debtor’s principal residence or domicile.
