Florida Bankruptcy Exemptions Explained
Bankruptcy is a difficult situation, but an increasingly common one for many people in Florida. If you are considering filing for bankruptcy, it is important to understand the exemptions available in the state of Florida. Bankruptcy exemptions allow individuals filing for bankruptcy to exempt certain types of property from being sold or liquidated to satisfy debt obligations. Knowing what your exemptions are can provide peace of mind during this often stressful and overwhelming process.
In Florida, both federal and state laws provide protections on certain assets such as homesteaded land and personal belongings like clothing, jewelry and books when filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection. The specific amount that may be exempted will vary depending on if the debtor owns other real estate or holds other types of property with equity value. Additionally, in some cases up to $1000 worth of vehicles can be protected under these exemptions as well.
