Kansas Exemptions May Benefit You in Bankruptcy

Kansas is what is known as a homestead state. That means that there are specific laws that protect your primary residence in bankruptcy. Kansas also has generous exemptions that protect up to $20,000 of value in your car.

These exemptions may make it seem like filing for bankruptcy in Kansas would be easy. While it is true that the bankruptcy process is governed by federal law, and it is possible to file for bankruptcy on your own, it is still extremely important to at least consult a lawyer before filing.

My name is Doug Breyfogle. As a bankruptcy attorney, I have helped countless consumers in Kansas seek and obtain real debt relief in Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy. If you are considering filing for bankruptcy in Overland Park, Leawood, Olathe, Lenexa, Shawnee, Merriam, Mission or Prairie Village, I invite you to contact my office in Kansas City today for a free, informative and confidential consultation.

Your Personal Bankruptcy Plan

I will help you understand the options available under Chapter 7 liquidation and Chapter 13 reorganization and help you make an informed decision as to which one is right in your particular situation. My goal is to help you get real relief from overwhelming debt. I will not try to “sell you” on filing for bankruptcy. I will help you look at all the alternatives available for finding a real solution for stopping creditor harassment and keeping your house out of foreclosure.

The New Bankruptcy Law and You

The 2005 bankruptcy law introduced the “means test” which limits who can file for Chapter 7 based on level of income as compared to the average consumer in the area. You need an experienced lawyer to guide you through the new federal law and explain how it applies specifically in Kansas.
