Will I Lose All of My Property During Bankruptcy?

Many people refrain from taking advantage of the protection bankruptcy may be able to offer due to an unsubstantiated fear that filing for bankruptcy will cause them to lose all of their property and valued assets. While Chapter 7 bankruptcy can involve the liquidation of an individual's assets for the purpose of helping an individual get his or her delinquent debts paid off, this does not mean that you will lose all of your property if you choose to file for bankruptcy. State and federal laws offer a number of exemptions to people who choose to file for bankruptcy.

A certain portion of the equity in your home, your family vehicles, furniture, clothing, children's toys, and other items may all be eligible for either state or federal exemption. Checking and savings accounts, retirement accounts, and other accounts might also be exempt from liquidation during bankruptcy.
