I am currently a Florida resident, if I move to NY and change my residency to New York and then wait 91 days...can I file a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy using the Federal Rules as opposed to the state rules?
State/Country relating to question: New York
Hi JACustomer,Have you lived in Florida for the past 2 1/2 years?If not, where have you lived for the past 2 1/2 years?
yes...I have lived in Florida for the past two years...I want to move to NY
You have to live in New York for at least 2 years before you can use the New York or federal exemptions. Until then, you have to use the Florida exemptions.
(91 days is the amount of time you have to live in New York before you can file a Bankruptcy in New York.)I think this is what you wanted to know. If not, please let me know.Thank you.
