Protected Assets and Exemptions Under Chapter 7

The ability to retain and protect assets necessary for your financial fresh start is an essential element of Chapter 7 bankruptcy law. These bankruptcy rules and laws for protection of assets assure that all parties seeking a financial fresh start will begin with all the basic items essential to ensure a prompt and full recovery. These protections are known as exemption laws. Experienced counsel knows how to cover all assets through solid, pre-bankruptcy asset planning and proper use of exemptions that protect:

  • Home equity up to $75,000 per person
  • Cash and other items up to $12,000+ per person
  • Retirement accounts and pension assets
  • 401K accounts, IRAs and tax exempt profit plans
  • Automobiles
  • Personal household belongings
  • And others…

Proper exemption planning requires specialized knowledge that assures you the maximum coverage necessary to protect all assets in every Chapter 7 filing.

The Chapter 7 Discharge and Future Income Protection

The goal of every Chapter 7 case is a court order legally extinguishing or “discharging” all forms of unsecured debt. This discharge order provides for the permanent protection of all existing assets along with all future assets and all future earnings.

The focus of Chapter 7 is always relief from overwhelming debt and the assured protection of individual and family financial futures. With the benefit of our specialized knowledge and vast experience, we’ve provided over 10,000 financial futures through the proper use of Chapter 7 court ordered debt relief.
