      A BRIEF SUMMARY OF BANKRUPTCY LIEN AVOIDANCE SECTIONS -Jan M. Sensenich 11 U.S.C. § (f) - Liens that Impair Exemptions 1. Judicial Liens (ex. judgment liens) 2.

That’s a huge advantage. The lien loses virtually all of its power. The debt gets lumped in with the rest of your “general unsecured” debts.
