Dwayne Farnsworth, Arizona attorney

Dwayne Farnsworth and Diane Drain were part of a small band of other consumer bankruptcy attorneys (Arizona Consumer Bankruptcy Counsel “ACBC“) who successfully accomplished that which many Arizona citizens have needed for more than 30 years.  This small group pushed through a change in most of the Arizona exemption laws which had not changed since 1982.  Generally the changes will increase household goods and furniture to $6,000, vehicles to $6,000, cash in bank account to $300 and tools of the trade to $5,000.  These numbers are per adult.   As to household goods and furnishings – the old exemption list which details the number of chairs and beds is done away with.  The new law now include computers, microwave ovens and lawn furniture.

Normally individuals who file bankruptcy in Arizona also use the Arizona exemptions (assuming they live in Arizona for more than two years).  This change in the law will be welcome by all Arizona citizens and their bankruptcy attorneys.

MUSINGS BY DIANE:

Each state has a list of property (real and personal) that is protected for the residents of that state.  That means a creditor (except the IRS and certain secured creditors) may not take exempt property.

Know your rights and make decisions based on the law, not your assumptions.  Giving property or paying back friends or family can become a nightmare if you are sued or need to file for bankruptcy protection.
