When filing for Chapter 7, the Trustee assigned to your case is allowed to sell your un-protected assets to pay back your creditors. However, you are allowed to use exemptions to protect your assets up to a certain dollar amount. For example, if your assets are worth $20,000.00 and you are allowed to exempt $15,000.00 of those assets, the Trustee would be allowed to sell $5,000.00 worth of your assets. The good thing is that in most cases, Mr. Bains will be able to navigate the exemptions intelligently and protect all of your assets. Do not risk having your assets sold from under you.
