If the Bankruptcy Trustee doesn’t think your exemptions are valid, you’ll definitely hear about it. The best way to make sure you’re using exemptions properly, and planning ahead for bankruptcy, is to talk to a bankruptcy attorney in New York.
There are books and websites designed to help you, but for the most up-to-date understanding of the law, nothing beats an experienced lawyer.
A bankruptcy attorney can explain your options to you and help you evaluate what’s best for your situation.
Are you filing independently or as a married couple? What are the implications associated with each? Do you have a home? A car? Non-exempt assets that you can sell and convert to exempt assets?
Only a bankruptcy lawyer can help you evaluate your situation and structure your bankruptcy in the safest way possible.
