Where do I file bankruptcy Petition?

Bankruptcy courts are part of the Federal Judicial System. This means bankruptcy proceedings are governed by federal law.
The Federal Court has multiple divisional offices located throughout the District. Each federal district has one or more bankruptcy courts, each of which is responsible for debtors within a certain geographic region. The specific location for filing or reviewing bankruptcy petitions is determined by the debtor's address.
You can also file in a divisional offices that you have a principal place of business, where you have assets for 180 days, or where you have assets for the longer part of 180 days than in any other district.
