Good Afternoon

My name is ***** ***** I am a NSW Solicitor. Thank you for your question, and will do my best to assist you with your question.

Once you are entitled to receive the estate the trustee in bankruptcy will take your share to meet your bankruptcy.

It would be in your best interests to try and reach an agreement and pay out the bankruptcy and keep your inheritance.

Otherwise they will seek orders to take it from you.

I am sorry I cannot give you anything more positive. If there is nothing further

thank you for using my services.

If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know

If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback.
