How long can a trustee hold funds that are exempt?
Over 34 years, I have assisted my clients with debt problems having filed more than 32000 Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy petitions.

the trustee must turn over exempt assets upon his filing of his no assest report. And he has a year to do so. Likewise, if things are now all concluded, your attonrey needs to get on the horn and call him. And if that does not work, he can file a motion known as a turnover order requring the trustee to remit the money to you.
