Alex Watts :

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this

Alex Watts :

This really depends how long it was when you sold your house and what you did with the money

Alex Watts :

If you simply spent it then yes you could do this.

Alex Watts :

If you transferred the property or cash to someone else for the purposes of avoiding creditors then this transfer can be reversed

The longer the time between transfer and bankruptcy the harder it is to prove the link
