Federal Vs. New York State Bankruptcy Exemption Schemes
We take a strategic approach in every consumer bankruptcy case, and carefully examine your assets and tailor a bankruptcy exemption scheme that will be beneficial to your unique circumstances. The assets you may retain during bankruptcy can vary depending on which the exemption scheme we apply to your case.
Your Retirement: Retain 401(k) Funds While Filing Bankruptcy
Your retirement funds are sacred. When you put money into a retirement account, you should not take it out until you have reached retirement age and you need it. Far too many people make the mistake of withdrawing retirement funds prematurely to get out of debt. No matter how much credit card debt you may have, our attorneys do not advise dipping into retirement accounts, including 401(k)s, pensions or annuities to pay off debts.
Please feel free to call (845) 406-4201 or contact us online to schedule an appointment to discuss protecting your cash and retirement funds during bankruptcy with an experienced Rockland County lawyer.
