What assets of a debtor are exempt from execution under Florida law?

There are actually many assets of a debtor that are exempt for execution under Florida law. Florida tends to be a bit of a debtor’s haven.

The exemptions are statutorily enumerated and they’re also contained in the state constitution. Probably the most common exemptions are homestead, the debtor’s primary residence, and also the debtor’s income or wages or salary if the debtor is in fact head of family under Florida law.

There are a number of other exemptions as well. Disability income can’t be attached. Retirement income can’t be attached. There are just a number of exemptions under Florida law that protect a debtor from seizure and execution upon the debtor’s assets.
