Can I Own Anything After Bankruptcy?

Yes! Many people believe they cannot own anything for a period of time after filing for bankruptcy. This is not true. You can keep your exempt property and anything you obtain after the bankruptcy is filed. However, if you receive an inheritance, a property settlement, or life insurance benefits within 180 days after filing for bankruptcy, that money or property may have to be paid to your creditors if the property or money is not exempt.

I would like to thank you both for your kindness, professionalism, and knowledge during the process of our bankruptcy. Your expertise helped us understand what we were doing and feel confident that we made the right decision.
