Wyoming State Exemption List
Only State Exemptions Allowed
In the state of Wyoming, you can not choose the federal bankruptcy list and must use the State or Wyoming Bankruptcy Exemption List. There may be certain federal supplemental exemptions you can use too. All exemptions should be discussed with your Wyoming Bankruptcy Attorney.
