The Automatic Stay and Assets Protected By Bankruptcy Exemptions
Two of the essential elements to obtaining financial recovery are the ability to halt all creditor collection activities and the protection of personal assets. The halting of all creditor actions is achieved by an automatic stay on all actions to collect immediately upon the filing of a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. This is a powerful federal law that sets the stage for full Chapter 7 recovery.
"Exemption laws" protect the assets and belongings that facilitate and assure the right to a fresh start and future financial success.
Basic federal and state bankruptcy exemptions include a range of protection provisions subject only to certain value limitations as follows:
- Bank Accounts
- Residential Home Equity
- Pensions, 401Ks and other tax exempt accounts
- Household Belongings
- Tools of the Trade
- Life Insurance Policies
- 529 Accounts
Chapter 7 Credit Card and Unsecured Debt Relief
The worst form of debt is credit card debt since it has the highest interest rates and the highest monthly payment. This includes all forms of unsecured debt like credit card debt, personal loans, payday loans and other forms of signature loans. Unsecured debt performs no useful function and diverts limited financial resources from more important obligations like mortgages, rent, cars and other monthly living costs. Chapter 7 provides complete unsecured debt relief, with minor exceptions, including elimination of:
- Credit Card Debts
- Personal Loans
- Payday Loans
- Deficiency Judgments from foreclosures
- Older State Income Taxes
- Older Federal Income Taxes
- Older Personal Property Taxes
