If you file either before you receive your inheritance, the Bankruptcy court may be able to take some or all or it.
However, if you file after you receive your inheritance, you will be able to use the money for everyday expenses so that there is little or nothing left by the time you file.
What were you planning on doing with the money?
If you do either of those with the money, the Bankruptcy court will be able to take the money from your mother's account or from your daughter's trust fund.
Can you wait to file a Bankruptcy while you use the money for everyday expenses?
Yes - you may have to provide some proof of what you did with the money. If you say you spent the money in Vegas, the trustee can ask for proof that you went to Vegas.
