Pop-Up CLE: What is With the Trustees Objecting to Exemptions?

What is With the Trustees Objecting to Exemptions – EIC/Child Care Credit and/or Prop 209 Exemptions?

ACBC has been monitoring the trustees’ attack on debtor’s using current exemptions. There are two different, but the same, issues. First, objecting to using the Prop 209 exemptions on any debts incurred before December 5, 2022, the effective date of the law. Second, objection to using the Earned Income and Child Care tax credits (that became law in September, 2022), for the reason that ““Prop 209 did not list that exemption, therefore Prop 209 repealed the new tax credit exemptions."

There are more than 60 objections, and more daily. The faculty will discuss the history, and how to deal with these objections. They will also provide copies of their responses to the trustee’s objections, plus exhibits.

Shortly after the program, a recording will be on ACBC’s YouTube Channel, and ACBC’s website Resources page.


Kenneth L. Neeley is a passionate entrepreneur and the owner of the Neeley Law Firm, PLC – a bankruptcy and debt resolution firm located in Chandler. He loves all things techie or creative (or preferably both). His clients appreciate how well he can explain debt relief options in plain language.

Yet, for some reason he has a much harder time explaining himself to his wife in plain language. Fortunately, she still seems to understand somehow. He has five amazing kiddos, ages 9 to 20.

Professionally, he is most proud of his awesome staff and his two published appellate wins for consumer debtors: In re. Gray, 523 B.R. 170 (9th Cir. BAP 2014) and In re. Neidorf, 534 B.R. 369 (9th Cir. BAP 2015).
