    Florida homestead exemption v. domicile

    I recently inherited a house in North Florida. I have resided in South Florida for 40+ years. I currently rent after doing a short sale on personal residence and now need to file BK. I'm confused about domicile vs homestead. Once probate is finished the N Fla home will not have homestead for tax purposes,...

    Which value do I use for my house?

    I bought it 5 years ago for 32,500. The mortgage is $25,500. I owe $23,050. In order to get the mortgage I had to add extra funds- so the price would be $41,500. It is insured for $55,000.

    I plan a chapter 7.

    The federal exemptions are better.

    I have...

    Liquor License - Tools of the trade

    My trustee rejected my use of "Tools of the Trade" exemption for a Liquor License. I need to justify this to him. Does anyone have anything to support this or a case where it was accepted?

  • Lien Stripping Question related to NonDischargeable Debt

    I have a pretty complicated question. Kudos to anyone who can answer it. The creditor got a judgment against the debtor and recorded a judicial lien in the county recorder's records. A year later the debtor got married, and two months later he filed bankruptcy. In the bankruptcy, the debtor claimed...

    Land Contract "Equity" and Chapter 7

    I am currently the buyer in a land contract in Ohio. I made a down payment and have made several principal payments on the loan, all to the owner of the home.

    How will the 'equity' I have in the home be viewed by a trustee if I file a chapter 7 bankruptcy? Ohio has a $20,200 homestead...

    Keeping Cars That Are Paid For and Needed?

    My wife and I are going to have to file Chapter 7. Banks have foreclosed on real estate on which we owed over $1M and one of them is seeking to collect a six figure deficiency judgment. We have very few assets because we [foolishly] used our IRAs and 401Ks in a failed attempt to reach settlements on...

    Filing Ch 7 is $20,000 bank account exempt?

    My attorney says because we do not have any real estate/ mortgage, we can use our exemptions to protect our checking and savings accounts, which total around 20K. We live in Texas, and he says he will use federal exemption laws and not state. We are filing Chapter 7 due to credit cards and medical bills....

    Can we keep 2 cars?

    My husband and I are filing jointly so I believe we can keep both but I want to be sure. The concern I have is that the cars are still very new and are both in my husband's name. We have a 2006 Ford Mustang that we owe about $11000 on and a 2007 Chevy HHR that we owe about $11500 on. The payments total...
