Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer.
Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Bankruptcy and Consumer Protection attorney here to assist you.
1) Have you lived in Indiana continuously for the past 2 1/2 years? If not, where have you lived for the past 2 1/2 years?
2) Have you already filed a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?
Thank you for your response.
You are allowed to keep approximately $10,000 worth of miscellaneous property - including an int inheritance.
In most cases, a Bankruptcy will have the same affect on a lawsuit, regardless of when the Bankruptcy is filed. Of course, you should discuss this with your Bankruptcy attorney, but it may be a good idea to postpone the filing until you get a better idea of how much your inheritance is worth.
And please have a pleasant evening!
