The Automatic Stay and Asset Protection Through Bankruptcy Exemptions

The elements essential to facilitating financial recovery are the immediate halting all creditor collection actions and the ability to protect necessary personal assets. An immediate halt on all creditor actions is provided by bankruptcy laws which provide an automatic stay on all actions to collect upon the filing of a bankruptcy petition. This is a powerful federal protection that sets the stage for Chapter 7 recovery.

Bankruptcy Exemptions allow individuals and families to protect the personal belongings helpful to a financial fresh start. These laws protect a wide variety of important personal assets, including:

  • Bank Accounts up to $12,750 per person
  • Residential Home Equity up to $75,000 per person
  • Automobiles
  • Pensions
  • 401K and other tax exempt accounts
  • Household Belongings
  • Tools of the Trade
  • Life Insurance Policies
  • 529 Accounts
