What happens to my inheritance if I file for bankruptcy? by Menomonee Falls WI Bankruptcy Lawyer
The answer to this question is complicated. If you are eligible to receive an inheritance within 6-months of filing for bankruptcy, that inheritance becomes part of your “bankruptcy estate” and the Trustee assigned to your case may use those proceeds to pay your creditors – thus, leaving you with less, or no inheritance. It is best to plan for this type of scenario by contacting our office and speaking with an attorney regarding the matter of inheritance.
