I went bankrupt in August, and since then, Life has changed. A boyfriend moved in and we`ve managed to save a little bit of money, not a lot, but we`re happy to finally have soemthing to fall back on besides credit cards. Can this money be taken away from us?

If you haven’t already done so, you need to inform your trustee that your living situation has changed. Your boyfriend’s income may affect how much you are required to pay to your trustee for “surplus income” – these payments are based on household size and total income.
