“The following personal property of an individual debtor
resident in this state is exempt from execution, attachment,
garnishment, distress or fee-bill” Ky. Rev. Stat. Ann. § 427.010.

This state permits only its residents to use its exemptions.  
Therefore, if it is the applicable state (as determined by the
method stated on the home page of this site), its exemptions
may be used only if the debtor is a resident of this state on the
date of filing bankruptcy.
