Inheritance After Discharge

January 30th, 2009 by Questions

I received my discharge in October of 2008. My mother just recently passed away and I will may be receiving a small inheritance from her will. Is there a certain amount of time that needs to pass after your discharge that you are able to receive money? I`m afraid the trustee will want these funds

As long as you have been discharged and you mother didn’t pass away until after you were discharged then you shouldn’t have any real problem. But you need to discuss this with your trustee. If you were aware that this was happening prior to being discharged you had a legal responsibility to disclose this to your trustee and the best way to confirm whether or not you will retain this money is to discuss it with your trustee.
