Another Court Confirms That Homes Get Greater Protection In Bankruptcy

Another court confirms that homes get greater protection in bankruptcy.  I had previously commented that the Ohio Legislature granted greater protection to homes in bankruptcy.  See my previous blog, “HOMES GET GREATER PROTECTION IN BANKRUPTCY.”  Starting April 1, 2013, each person can keep up to $132,900 of equity in their home, which adds up to $265,800 for a married couple filing a joint bankruptcy. For some time, there was litigation over whether this new law applied to every situation.  The Bankruptcy Court in Canton, Ohio, recently ruled that it does.
