Which Bankruptcy district's court will you be using?
Which set of exemptions are you planning on using (703 or 704)?
correction to my email address: [email protected]
southern district of california. san diego. 704.
Sorry this took so long - I wanted to make sure I had the correct statute numbers.
There is no spousal waiver form for 704 exemptions. You only have to submit a spousal waiver form if you are going to use 703 exemptions.
This is because the 703 exemptions are only applicable to Bankruptcy cases, and are not available for a non-filing spouse.
In other words, if you are using the 704 exemptions, these are the same ones your wife would have to use - since she is not also filing - so there is no need for a waiver form.
I think this is what you wanted to know. If not, please let me know.
i was told by the trustee that i must file a spousal exemption waiver, signed by my spouse. i filed under 703.140(b)(5).
maybe he wanted a 703 waiver from my wife.
i will be away from my computer. can you txt me the answer? and send it to my email.
You email address was deleted - as they all are.
Here is the form (you need a 703 form, not a 704 form):
You have to white-out the "Eastern" and write "Southern" instead.
