What Are Illinois Bankruptcy Exemptions?

Major exemptions available when filing for bankruptcy in Illinois are listed below, with a brief description of each exemption. Illinois has opted not to allow its residents to utilize the federal exemptions, so only Illinois statutes that define and list the exemptions can be used. A lawyer should be consulted to determine the particulars of each exemption and to determine all available exemptions that may be filed.
