ExemptionsExpress The Guide to Exemption Options For Bankruptcy Attorneys
John R. Bates'
Purpose Of This Website
The purpose of this website is to assist the attorney for a debtor who is considering filing a bankruptcy petition to determine: 1. The sets of exemptions (federal, state, or choice of either) that are available to that debtor; 2. The territorial limitations, if any, there are on use of those exemptions; and 3. The statutory and case law supporting those determinations.
WARNING: 11 USC § 522(b)(3)(B) specifies that the protection to be given tenancy by the entireties and other jointly-held property in bankruptcy is determined by “applicable nonbankruptcy law.” Therefore, the rules upon which this website is based do not apply to such property.
