Miscellaneous Exemptions

Posted by attorney Dwayne Farnsworth

Because there are any number of personal property assets that can be considered as necessary to allow a debtor to maintain their basic standard of living, and to function and operate in their day-to-day lives, there is a grouping or classification of exemptions which is simply “miscellaneous exemptions". For example, in Arizona a debtor can protect up to $500 worth of clothing from creditors levy or execution, $800 worth of domesticated pets, $400 worth of musical instruments, equity in wedding or engagement rings up to $2000, food fuel and provisions for the debtor, and their family, for up to a 6 months supply; bicycles, firearms, burial lots, typewriters, and even more recently, home computers, for up to an aggregate value of $1000.
