My sister had her bankruptcy discharged 12/1010. Her mother-n-law has passed away several years ago but the family kept everything in tack as is. Her and her husband didn't even know if they would ever sell the property. Now the other sisters want to sell the house and cash out. Is this a problem for her and her husband? According to the real estate agent, there could a sum of $75,000+. The house is in a trust,. They were told the trust is not taxable. Will the bankruptcy court want that money?
State/Country relating to question: California
Is the money tracked. If they cash the check, will the bankruptcy court find out?
