I’m single and don’t have any assets of mine. Heavily buried under mortgage debt. Neither have a car, nor a job, rather accumulated lots of debt. I want to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy and wish to have a fresh financial start. However, few weeks ago I inherited around $60,000 from my grandmother who passed away days before then. Can I make use of any exemption to use this money? How much? Any advice will be heartily appreciated.

Don’t rush to file for bankruptcy. If your assets or wages are not getting seized, a quick bankruptcy filing might not be a wise idea. Rather, you should consult an experienced bankruptcy lawyer so that you can keep as much property as possible in the case. Hope this helps!
