Property Exemptions for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in Oklahoma

Bankruptcy Lawyers Serving Tulsa and Eastern Oklahoma

Some states follow both federal and state guidelines for bankruptcy exemptions for property; however, in Oklahoma, bankruptcy laws mandate that only Oklahoma State exemptions are allowed in Oklahoma bankruptcy filings.

You may be able to exempt some personal secured and unsecured property depending upon whether you are filing Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. An Oklahoma bankruptcy attorney from The Colpitts Law Firm can help you understand the different factors that impact your ability to exempt property.

It is possible that you can exempt your:

  • Home/homestead
  • Car(s)
  • Pensions
  • Clothing
  • Furniture
  • Pictures
  • Financial funds related to certain lawsuits such as wrongful death up to a certain amount
  • Any retirement accounts/retirement investments
  • Jewelry, depending on cash value
  • Social Security benefits

Get started by scheduling a free consultation with our Chapter 7 bankruptcy attorneys in Oklahoma. Call (918) 302-2662 to request yours.

Farming Property Exemptions in Oklahoma

If you are a farmer filing for bankruptcy, you have additional exemptions allowed by the state that include livestock, farm equipment, land not to exceed 160 acres, and other exceptions. The Tulsa bankruptcy lawyers at The Colpitts Law Firm understand the laws that are in place to protect a farm and will ensure your rights are protected throughout the bankruptcy process.

Specifics for Exemptions

To retain non-exempt property, you normally have to pay the trustee the valued amount of the property for the proceeds to be used in resolving your debt. If a married couple is filing for joint bankruptcy, each spouse is allowed to use the same exemptions. Our team has a comprehensive understanding of all Oklahoma property exemptions in bankruptcy filings. We make it a priority to protect your assets and maximize the exemptions you are allowed.
