    they requested me to turn over funds I didn’t have
    What happened to the money from the insurance claim?

    Based on the little information you posted, they have a textbook case for cancelling the discharge. You failed to disclose an asset in your case, failed to turn it over when requested, since it was no longer yours under the bankruptcy code, but belonged to the Trustee. Best advise, get an attorney experienced in bankruptcy litigation, not filing bankruptcy cases.

    Please answer the following questions.

    1. How much did you receive on the insurance claim?

    2. How much is the total debt you listed on SCHEDULE F? (look at the document - don't guess)

    Bottom line, you owe the $$ to the bk estate and if you don't settle with your Trustee you will lose the discharge. It is just a matter of how you are going to pay it to the Trustee in an effort to save your discharge. Please answer the questions so that I can try to make a suggestion or two that may help.
