If I win the lottery a year after bankruptcy, can I go back and pay my old bills?
Yes. But the only former client I had who won the lottery would not pay her old debts- She had gotten mad at the way the creditors treated her and felt they didn't deserve her money. Incidentally if you win the lottery less than 6 months after you file bankruptcy, then your winnings can go to your creditors. So hold off buying tickets. What if you buy the ticket before the 6 months is up and don't cash it in right away? Call us up and we will tell you.
