This is a difficult question to answer without reviewing the proper documentation. But techincally, if the accounts meet the true definition of trust property then they are considered exempt from seizure in a bankruptcy. What you need to do is bring all the documentation you have relating to these trust funds and have them reviewed by a local trustee.
