Moore v. Page
Submitted November 26, 1883
Decided March 24, 1884
111 U.S. 117
A husband may settle a portion of his property upon his wife, if he does not thereby impair the claims of existing creditors, and the settlement is not intended as a cover to future schemes of fraud.
When a husband settles a portion of his property on his wife, it should not be mingled up or confounded with that which he retains or be left under his management or control without notice that it belongs to her.
This was a creditor's bill to reach property conveyed by the debtor to his wife, and have it applied to the payment of the debt. The decree below sustained the conveyance, from which the creditor appealed. chanroblesvirtualawlibrarychanroblesvirtualawlibrary
