Property Exemption Limits

The state of Ohio provides a property exemption available on personal property in bankruptcy. A person may protect this property from the bankruptcy proceedings in instances of Chapter 7 collection. These exemptions will protect property from collection, but will only allow this protection up to a certain maximum value. If the exemption does not cover the worth of the property, that debtor may be able to address the remaining amount with another exemption such as a wildcard exemption.
