Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Bankruptcy litigation attorney. Thanks for your question. I'll be glad to help you with this issue.

If you are going to deed the property without receiving fair market value in return, you must wait at least a year before filing. If you fail to do so, the transfer could be considered fraudulent and the trustee could try to reverse the transaction and retake the property.

I hope this answers your question, but if you need something else, do not hesitate to ask. Thanks.
