Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Bankruptcy litigation attorney. Thanks for your question.
It is possible to file bankruptcy in the state that you have lived in the last 180 days OR where your principal assets have been located for the last 180 days.
Thus, you may have the right to choose California or Arizona. Usually, one's residence is where all of his/her principal assets are located (or at least the biggest asset - the home). But, there are cases where that's not true.
That said, it's most likely that Arizona would be the applicable venue, and whose median income you'd choose.
