Texas probate requires that all debts be paid from estate before estate can be setteled.
I do not owe on house or car or furniture. Can the creditors of a previous bankruptcy make claim against estate
the short answer is that it depends. If the case was filed within 180 days and the inheritance is received by the Debtor within that period the Chapter 7 trustee has a right to be notified and paid out any inheritance the debtor received. You should speak with a Texas licensed attorney or your bankruptcy attorney in the case. it depends on when you case was filed whether you have to disclose it to the trustee.
Depends on timing and whether the debts were discharged in the prior bankruptcy. See a local bankruptcy lawyer to determine how this relates to your situation.
