Generally speaking, bankruptcy law provides protections (known as exemptions in bankruptcy law) of certain assets or items of property that you own. It depends on the specific asset as to whether it is protected or may need to be turned over. Bankruptcy law permits debtors to protect assets based on the necessity of the asset. Note: If there is an asset not qualified for an exemption, it may still be protected.
