What is the name of your state? UT

I have a question, I do have a structured settlement.
And the last couple years I have had some medical
problems that has costed me over 30K. NO INSURANCE.
So Two years ago I sold SOME, not all of my periodic payments.
Well this August I am going to file a chapter 7. I have to! Im
so broke. What my question is, is I am expected to get a yearly
check this AUG 17th for 9300.00, Its up to me to send it on to the company in which bought my payments. Can i keep the payment and put the purchaser of the payments on the bankruptcy? I really need to get my car out of the hole as well as my house payment before I can do the bankruptcy and that would barely get me out of debt with the creditors I still wish to work with after the chapter 7.

Any help would be great!!!
