New York’s exemptions are limited to "an individual debtor
domiciled in this state.” N.Y. Debt. & Cred. Law § 282.
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 domiciliary of this state on
the date of filing bankruptcy. In re Crandall, 346 B.R. 220
(Bankr. M.D. Fla 2006) (because debtor was not domiciled in
New York, New York exemptions were not available to her).
