Hi - my name is Chris and I'm a Bankruptcy attorney here to assist you.
You can file a Bankruptcy in SD after you have lived there for at least 90 days.
Have you lived in SD for 90 days?
How long have you lived where you are living now?
I lived in IL for several years, had numerous surgeries. I had an attorney in Chicago and was paying him $50/month. When I moved to Wyoming, I didn't contact him because I thought I would have to file in IL and need your help.
I chatted with an attorney in IL and he said that I would have to come back to Chicago to file. That's a big deal for me as I'm living on widows benefits of $1,169.00
You originally said you moved to SD to live with your son.
So you currently live in SD or in Wyoming?
Where have you lived for the past 3 months?
