Hi
I filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy on May 2011 and was discharged on Dec 2012, the gab was due to a bitter adversary procedures from my ex wife.

My mom, who is a non us citizen living overseas, is welling to give me a portion of my early inheritance. The first portion will be about $100,000 in addition to transferring a property overseas to me.

Is there any bad consequences or troubles that I may face from this step?


Thanks

Is the early inheritance from your mother?

Customer:

Yes, she is doing that since she lives in Egypt and there is a civil war going on right now.

Thank you for your response. With a few non-relevant exceptions, one's Bankruptcy estate consists only of assets that one owns at the time the Bankruptcy is filed.

cfortunato :

That means the Bankruptcy court cannot touchh anything you receive after your Bankruptcy is filed.

Customer:

So Is it safe if she transfer money to me?
