Voidable Transactions Act Amendments (2014) - Formerly Fraudulent Transfer Act


The Uniform Voidable Transactions Act (UVTA), formerly named the Uniform Fraudulent Transfer Act (UFTA), strengthens creditor protections by providing remedies for certain transactions by a debtor that are unfair to the debtor’s creditors. The 2014 amendments to the UVTA address a small number of narrowly-defined issues, and are not a comprehensive revision of the act.
