Types of Bankruptcy Exemptions

One of the most common bankruptcy myths is that people think they will lose all of their property and possessions if they file for bankruptcy.  This is not true.  There are specific exemptions allowed so that you are able to retain many of your possessions.  The exemptions are different from state to state.  California has opted-out of using the federal exemptions and has outlined their own.  A California bankruptcy lawyer will be able to discuss this list in detail with you and be able to help you decide if filing for bankruptcy is the right choice.

Some of the items that are exempt from being included in your bankruptcy proceedings are:

  • Real or personal property occupied at the time of filing for bankruptcy up to $50,000 if single or $75,000 for family
  • Motor vehicle or insurance up to $2,700
  • Food, clothing, appliances and furnishings
  • Jewelry, heirlooms and art up to $6,750
  • Health aids
  • Disability or health benefits
  • Public/Private retirement benefits
  • Unemployment benefits

This list is in no way complete.  It is given here to illustrate the fact that should you chose the option of filing for bankruptcy, you will not be left without any possessions.  There are many more exemptions in California that could be included in your schedule of exemptions.  At Price Law Group, our lawyers can answer questions that you may have concerning what exemptions you are eligible for.
