I am moving or just moved. Where do I have to file my bankruptcy?

Your bankruptcy petition will be filed in the district bankruptcy court where you live. But, if you recently moved- you will have to have lived in the court’s jurisdiction for the last 180 days (roughly six months). If you are a business, then where you have your principal place of business, where the business is organized or where there is a pending case of an affiliate or your partner. 28 USC 362.
