Can I Own Anything
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.
You can have bank accounts, too. 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.
