bankruptcy and lottery wins
June 25th, 2008 by Questions
I just declared bankruptcy due to an impending divorce and significant financial costs associated with it. My question is what would happen if I won the lottery during my period of bankruptcy. I understand any winnings would be held as part of my assets. However, once all of the debts are paid in full would the remainder of the monies be returned to me. Silly question I know but as an avid lottery player it would be the one time I finally win.
