Saving Your Home And Car In Bankruptcy
The concept of filing bankruptcy is an intimidating prospect to some people, who believe that they will lose all of their property and possessions in a filing. Because of several exemptions built into the Florida bankruptcy law, however, most people who file for bankruptcy protection do not lose any property at all. Those with substantial property can usually keep their property if they agree to pay back some of their debt.

We Know How To Protect Your Assets To The Fullest Extent Possible
We file over one thousand Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases each year. We know the law. We can tell you what is considered exempt and non-exempt property. Typically, Florida is regarded as one of the best states in which to file bankruptcy because it has the most encompassing list of exempt property in the country. This list includes your home and your car.
In order to keep your house and car, you must keep making the payments on your mortgage and auto loan.
Florida’s homestead exemption law allows you to keep your house, regardless of its value. These exemptions are limited to $125,000 in cases in which you have owned your home for fewer than forty months.
