Not as long as you maintain all proceeds separate from your community property assets and accounts.

No, not unless she is a named beneficiary. Anything you inherit is your separate property, and as Mr. McCormick points out, you need to avoid commingling anything you inherit from community property.

The trust document will control who gets what upon death.
