Where do I file bankruptcy?



You must file a bankruptcy in federal court, often a special bankruptcy court, in a particular bankruptcy district.  

The proper district you may choose to file at depends on either where you:

(1) have been domiciled,
(2) have had a residence,
(3) have had a principal place of business, or
(4) have had principal assets

for 180 days immediately before the date of filing the bankruptcy petition (or, alternatively, for 91 or more of the last 180 days).  See 28 USC Section 1408.

Thus, sometimes you may have more than one option where to file bankruptcy.  However, most filers in most cases elect to file based on where they have their residence.
