Hello,So sorry to hear of this dilemma. If my answer is not clear to you, please ask me for clarification by using the reply button.
You may only in the state in which you reside. If you have resided in Georgia for 6 or more months, you may file in Georgia
i lived in GA for 10 years, then moved to CA for 8 months, still have my drivers license there, but have left CA and have been in CO since leaving my job in May.
the residency requirements to file is a federal law, and you have to wait 6 months...it doesn't make sense to me and is very frustrating...are there any other routes so that i can file immediately?
i retained a bankruptcy attorney in CA, told them my plans to file bankruptcy asap and then move. they then told me after 3 months of working with me and taking my money that i should file in CO. i am now receiving the calls from creditors who are threatening litigation, which makes me believe that i need to file asap.
