Hello I am a licensed attorney here to help you with your question, please review my response and do not hesitate to ask for clarification

WALLSTREETESQ :

If you will be obtaining a significant amount of money, you would have to declare the income and amend your chapter 13 bankruptcy,

WALLSTREETESQ :

In terms of a chapter 13, I would suggest filing to disimiss the case, and use the money to settle some of your debts,

WALLSTREETESQ :

and after a year or longer refile a new chapter 13, that may be your best option
