In a Chapter 7 (personal) bankruptcy, a person’s debts are examined in Bankruptcy Court to see which are eligible to be discharged or eliminated. In addition, person filing for bankruptcy will be asked to disclose all of their assets to determine what, and how much, the debtor may keep and what must be used toward the payment of debt.
Federal bankruptcy law and Arizona law both allow for certain exemptions as far as a debtor’s assets and possessions are concerned. These laws are subject to change as the courts continue to interpret them. Here is a partial list of some of the recently revised exemptions in the state of Arizona:
▪ Some household furniture and furnishings
▪ Most household goods including some consumer electronic devices
▪ Some tools, equipment, instruments and books
▪ Intangible business assets including some things such as phone numbers and client/customer contact information
▪ Most marketing tools such as websites, domain names or any other intangible work products
