Wage Exemptions in Alabama

Each state establishes its own specific bankruptcy exemptions which bankruptcy filers within the state may elect to use. For example, a person may exempt a portion of their unpaid wages from inclusion in consideration of a bankruptcy filing. These exemptions must be sought prior to an individual or business’s petition for bankruptcy protection. As these unpaid wages can help a debtor to begin resolving debts or to regain his or her financial footing, the bankruptcy code reflects a desire to avoid penalizing this income.

Living in a state of constant financial distress can be exhausting and can even produce dangerous health effects. Bankruptcy protection can help you to put an end to this strain. For legal counsel and representation that can help you to protect your unpaid wages, contact the Birmingham bankruptcy lawyers of Greenway Bankruptcy Law, LLC, at (205) 324-4000 today.

Exemptions for Wages

Unpaid wages represent a means for a debtor to help themselves begin the process of rebuilding their finances. For many individuals, a wage exemption during bankruptcy can provide an important source of income when it is needed most. The following are some important aspects of wage exemptions in Alabama:

  • 75 percent of the unpaid wages may be declared exempt
  • Wages must be earned, although unpaid
  • A bankruptcy judge has the authority to modify this amount
  • Low-income debtors may increase this exemption
