Asset Protection

Bankruptcy and Asset Protection


Protecting your assets during bankruptcy involves understanding and utilizing state and federal exemptions. Exemptions allow you to keep certain assets, like a portion of the equity in your home, personal belongings, and retirement accounts, out of the bankruptcy estate.

Understanding Exemptions

The specifics of what you can exempt and to what extent vary by state. Some states allow you to choose between state and federal exemption schemes, while others require you to use state-specific exemptions.


Effective asset protection in bankruptcy requires careful planning and accurate disclosure of all assets and debts. Consulting with a bankruptcy attorney is crucial to navigate exemptions properly and maximize the protection of your assets.
