What is the name of your state?Today....in Florida...I had my 341 Meeting for a Chapter 7 BK. Everything went fine and I just waiting on the Discharge in 60 days. IRONICALLY..When I got home I got a call regarding my grandmothers estate. She died in 1994. She was supposed to recieve part of the EXXON Valdez Oil settlement...and she stated in her WILL that 11 of us would split her share. This call came today....first one since she died...and I am in mortal fear that I may have inherited that money on the very day that my credit is officially ruined for 10 years. I never in my wildest dreams thought I would ever see it since its been 15 years and Exxon hasnt paid ONE penny. I didnt answer the call but heard the voice mail that it was in regards to her estate. I cant imagine what else it would be about.
What are my options...if in fact this is what I think...has EXXON paid out?? I cant locate any info on that.
I know Im supposed to report any inheritance or large sums of money that I receive within 180 days of my BK Filing (Dec 16th). Can I do anything.....like refuse my share so that the other beneficiaries get my portion?? Id rather do that than hand it over to the Trustee.
What are all of my options??? I wish I could just ignore the calls for about 8 months...heh. But I dont want to get any fraud charges or an overturned Discharge.
