Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Bankruptcy litigation attorney here to assist you.
You must pass the means test, which was implemented by the 2005 amendments. Here's an article on that: http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/article-29907.html
You must also have a certificate of credit counseling. The court or your attorney can help you find a local program that you can apply for.
Also, there's nothing against the law about filing bankruptcy and then moving to another state. However, it may be problematic in terms of showing up to court for hearings, creditor meetings, etc. because of the distance you may have to travel.
