Bankruptcy Exemptions

Bankruptcy Exemptions

What assets can you keep after bankruptcy?

After you have filed for bankruptcy, whether you chose to file Chapter 7 or Chapter 13, it is vitally important that you recognize and understand the bankruptcy exemptions you are eligible for. These will vary from state to state, but a comprehensive understanding of these is vitally important to the successful outcome of your case. The purpose of these exemptions is to allow you to keep those assets that are imperative to maintaining your current standard of living.

In California, there are many different exemptions that vary depending on the specific details of your situation. For example, your homestead is exempted depending on its value, your age, and the current size of your family. Other assets that are exempted include such things as motor vehicles, food, clothing, heirlooms, and other non-physical assets, such as wages and pensions. To best understand your current situation and which of your assets are eligible to be exempted, do not hesitate to contact an experienced Orange County bankruptcy attorney to get all of your questions answered.
