I filed bankruptcy about 2 years ago. How can I protect an inheiritance i am about to receive?
1 Answer from Attorneys
Because more than 180 days has elapsed since the filing of the bankruptcy, the inheritance is not property of the estate. Assuming that the bankruptcy case was/is under chapter 7, the inheritance should not require protection from the trustee. As for protection from creditors you may still have, that's a more complicated question. You would need to retain an atorney to answer that question. Contact me if you require advice.
