I am a beneficiary under my mothers trust. She is still alive.

Resolved Question:

I am a beneficiary under my mother's trust. She is still alive. I am indebted over my head. If I file bankruptcy must I disclose my position under the trust? If I must, will the court lien my future right to get property?

If your mother is still alive and the assets of the trust are not yet available to you, your filing of bankruptcy would not effect this future interest. This is so because you don't own the property, nor do you have an ownership right or interest until she passes away.
