What Bankruptcy Exemptions Are Available in Ohio?

Ohio Bankruptcy Exemption - Calhoun, Kademenos & ChildressAs Ohio bankruptcy attorneys, we understand that the laws surrounding bankruptcy can be complex and confusing. What makes it even worse for most Buckeyes is the fact that this is a decision likely made during a time of extreme stress. You’re not sure who to turn to, where to get help, and what to do next to protect your possessions while avoiding financial ruin.

Clients considering bankruptcy often ask me about exemptions. To put it simply, exemptions are laws that allow you to protect certain property from your creditors. This could include your home, your car, etc. Chapter 7 bankruptcy allows you to keep certain items under the exemptions. Under Chapter 13 bankruptcy, the exemption laws affect how much you pay to creditors through your established plan.  [Read more…]
