What do I get to keep?

In Florida your homestead is exempt (subject to few restrictions), IRAs and 401ks, cash value of life insurance, the Wages of the Head of the Household, $1000 in personal property and $1000.00 equity in an automobile. Additionally, those who do not own and home or claim a homestead exemption are entitled to an extra $4,000 wildcard exemption. There are additional exemptions in Florida that apply in other limited situations.
If you are considering filing for bankruptcy, I suggest consulting with an experienced bankruptcy attorney.
