The Importance Of Bankruptcy Planning

Many people assume they will lose much or all of their property in bankruptcy. Fortunately, that is not the case. Federal and state law allows you to keep certain types of property — such as your home and personal belongings — up to a certain dollar limit. These protected properties are called “exemptions.”

Before even filing bankruptcy, you should meet with an attorney to determine how best to protect your assets. This is true whether you are pursuing Chapter 7Chapter 13 or even Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Exemptions are particularly critical in Chapter 7, where a bankruptcy trustee will liquidate your nonexempt assets. Failure to properly navigate the process can result in losing more property than necessary.

In any type of bankruptcy, exemptions are key to protecting your assets.

After Filing Bankruptcy

The act of filing bankruptcy in itself can protect your assets. As soon as you file, wage garnishment will stop immediately. If your car is in the process of being repossessed, or on the verge of repossession, that, too, will immediately halt.

For those facing home foreclosure, bankruptcy will delay the foreclosure process. This postponement will allow you valuable time to pursue options for saving your home, such as loan modification or a repayment plan.

Bankruptcy can be a powerful tool for protecting your assets.
