Insolvency Exemptions

Insolvency Exemptions
"""Bankruptcy exemptions are laws enacted by both the state and federal governments to protect a debtor's assets and guarantee a fresh start after filing for bankruptcy. In order to file for bankruptcy, debtors must complete out numerous forms. Included is the Schedule C form. On this form, a debtor will enumerate the exempt property he is claiming.

There are numerous laws governing bankruptcy exemptions, but a debtor has two options: state exemption laws or federal exemption laws. However, only 15 states and the District of Columbia permit debtors to select between federal and state exemption laws. Arkansas, Connecticut, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas, Vermont, Washington, and Wisconsin are the states in question.
