Bankruptcy Exemptions

Even today in Metro Detroit, it is not uncommon for people to believe that bankruptcy only takes things from you. As with many bankruptcy myths, that is simply not true.In fact, bankruptcy is designed to preserve the belongings you need to get your fresh start. Your clothing, furniture and other essentials are all normally protected by bankruptcy laws.On top of that, bankruptcy also provides for a number of protections called bankruptcy “exemptions.” An exemption is designed to protect different kinds of property up to a certain value amount, a car, for example, or even equity in a house. Retirement accounts, a 401(k) or a Roth IRA, for instance, are also generally protected.
