Seek Relief Through Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

When you owe creditors money, they can implement various methods to try to recover the money they are owed. They may call constantly and may even garnish your wages or repossess your property. Chapter 7 bankruptcy will place an automatic stay on all collection efforts, including foreclosure. You will have a little breathing room to work out a repayment plan, with all eligible debt being discharged upon the successful completion of this plan.

Chapter 7 bankruptcy can stop:

  • Foreclosure
  • Repossession
  • Creditor harassment
  • Wage garnishment
  • All creditor contact and collection efforts

Understanding Bankruptcy Exemptions in Florida

Many people are understandably concerned about losing assets in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing. However, when you file for bankruptcy, certain assets are exempt from liquidation.

In the state of Florida, you are required to use Florida's bankruptcy exemptions, not federal exemptions.

Florida provides the following bankruptcy exemptions:

  • Homestead - Unlimited amount of equity for property less than 160 acres, or half an acre in a municipality
  • Personal Property - Up to $1000, or $4000 if you do not use a Homestead exemption
  • Other Essential Property - Includes education savings, hurricane savings, prescribed health aids, tax credits, and funeral costs
  • Motor Vehicle - Up to $1000 in equity, or more if you're married and filing jointly
  • Wages - Specific exemptions for the head of household vs other members of the family
  • Pensions - Includes ERISA qualified retirement plans, public employee retirement benefits, firefighter and police pensions, and teachers' retirement benefits
  • Public Benefits - Veteran's, social security, reemployment assistance, worker's compensation, unemployment compensation, and crime victims' compensation
  • Alimony and Child Support - Up to the extent necessary to support the person filing for bankruptcy and any of their dependents
  • Insurance - Proceeds of a life insurance policy, disability income, and benefits from a fraternal society

Other exemptions exist in the state of Florida for specific cases, such as personal injury lawsuits.
