Thanks for your question.You would have to report this if you are not yet discharged and creditors might try to liquidate it here.You really don't want to do this here while bankruptcy is pending here because it is subject to liquidation like any other assets.To not report it might get your filing dismissed here.He can will it to you here and that way you get it after bankruptcy discharge.
