California's exemption amounts are no longer updated in the statutes themselves. California Code of Civil Procedure section 703.150 deputizes the California judicial council to update the exemption amounts every three years. (The last revision was in 2019; the next will be 2022.) As a result, the amounts listed in this chart (from the 2019 revisions) may not match the amounts that appear in the cited statutes. The current exemption amounts can be found on the California Judicial Council Website.
