Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
How long can a Trustee go back to take money from your bank accounts? I thought it was six months. This seems like a petty way to get more money/assets from us because he could not have touched it if we left it in the insurance account. If we wanted to hide it from creditors and use it ourselves we could have taken out the money after filing. Since we have receipts to show we paid an exempt account - how is it even possible to say we were hiding it from creditors? It seems unfair that he can go back this long - plus we held onto the money for such a short time.
