Will my bonus be taken? 3 Answers as of August 27, 2010I was just informed by my employer that I will be receiving a bonus after my Chapter 7 bankruptcy case is discharged. I did not include this bonus on the bankruptcy because I had no idea about it. Is the court going to take the bonus after my case is discharged?

If the bonus is received after you have received your discharge, it is not likely that your bonus will be taken. I am assuming that you filed a Chapter 7 bankruptcy and that you had not already earned the bonus before you filed the bankruptcy case. For information specific to your case, please call me.
