Issues Relating to Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in Nevada - What Property Can I Keep?
"The property that is exempt, i.e., the items you can retain if you file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, typically varies by state. In Nevada, it is common for Chapter 7 bankruptcy filers to retain nearly all of their assets. Specifically, individuals who file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Nevada can typically retain the following:
Up to $550,000 in home equity, but you must have possessed the property for at least 1,215 days prior to filing the petition; otherwise, the homestead exemption is limited to $125,000.

75% of weekly disposable earnings or 50 times the minimum hourly wage, whichever is greater

Up to $500,000 in present value for qualified retirement plans, such as IRAs, pensions, and certain annuities.

$15,000 in equity in your automobile, or any vehicle expressly equipped for the debtor or a dependent with a permanent disability.

Not to exceed $12,000 in value for essential domestic items, furnishings, apparel, electronics, and other personal effects.

The value of private libraries, artwork, jewelry, and musical instruments cannot exceed $5,000.

All family photographs and mementos

Professional libraries, equipment, office supplies, and the tools, instruments, and materials used in the debtor's trade, not exceeding a value of $10,000

One firearm to be chosen by the debtor

All money, benefits, privileges, or immunities accruing from a life insurance policy for which the annual premium is less than $15,000

All child support and alimony received

Less than $16,150 in compensation for a personal injury is deemed insufficient.

Social Security benefits in total

All security deposits held by the landlord of the principal residence of the debtor

Any personal property (real estate, personal property, money, stock, bond, funds on deposit, etc.) valued at less than $1,000.
The value of property is not the amount you paid for it, but rather its value at the time your bankruptcy case is filed.
