Bankruptcy Venue and Where Can you File
Bankruptcy venue is the concept that guides where, in which specific geographic location, someone can file a Chapter 7, Chapter 11 or other bankruptcy petition.
Where? In bankruptcy court, of course! Yes, but in which location? Must it be the exact federal circuit, state, or district in which someone lives? Or is having one asset in that district enough? And what if someone lives outside the United States… can they even file bankruptcy? Is having a bank account in a district sufficient contacts to establish proper venue?
