- Q. Give example of: Homestead exemption, Catch-all Exemption, Equity, Conversion, Dismissal, Bankruptcy petition preparer.
- A: Ny homestead exemption varies by county. A catch-all would be a wildcard that exempts any type of property. The federal exemptions tend to be better than NY State exemption for wild card. Equity is the difference between what is owed and the value of the item secured by a loan like a house or car. If you own a home worth $250,000 and owe $275,000 there is no equity. If you owe $240,000 you have $10,000 in equity and you would want to declare an exemption of $10,000 to keep that out of the trustees hands. Conversation is when a bankruptcy switches chapters such as from a 7 to 13. For instance some one declares a chapter 7 bankruptcy, and the trustee thinks the value of a property has 100,000 in equity above exemptions and moves to sell the property. A debtor would want to convert his chapter 7 to a chapter 13. Any one who prepares a bankruptcy petition is a bankruptcy petition preparer. If you do it for your self it is called filing pro se. If a non-attorney does it for you they need to file a form for you to submit to the court. If you have questions, talk to a bankruptcy attorney. Most will not charge for a consultation.
