Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
Hi, thanks for your question. You should hire a lawyer for specific legal advice. No attorney client relationship is created here.
The case is filed based on the county where the debtor lives
The case is filed electronically as well thru the attorney.
The attorney will handle all coverage matters, regardless of where the hearings are at
Did you have any questions?
The attorney I want to use is near the court that is farther away from my home and in another county. My question was can I opt to file in the other court?
You don't have a choice
it is based on where you live
Not where the attorney is
The attorney should be able to file in the area you live and attend the hearings there, if not, you will need to find another attorney.
Any other questions?
If you have any further questions, let me know. if not, please click on accept to close the question, thanks
