Under federal law, we are designated as a debt relief agency. We help people file for bankruptcy under the Bankruptcy Code.
CAN YOU KEEP YOUR HOUSE?
It is possible to keep certain property whether you file for Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
In most cases you will be able to keep all of your assets. You can keep property that is “exempt.” Here is a list of some of the most common exemptions:
Personal property such as jewelry, clothing, appliances, furnishings, household goods, musical instruments and health aids
Tools needed for your trade
Pensions and retirement accounts (e.g., employer-sponsored 401(k) or 403(b) accounts) are generally protected, so it is rarely a good idea to liquidate these accounts
