Residency Requirements for Bankruptcy: Arizona Presence Required
Not everyone who hopes to file for bankruptcy-Arizona will satisfy the residency requirements, but most individuals will not experience a problem. Before a bankruptcy petition is filed, the Pew Law Center team will establish whether filing for bankruptcy in the District of Arizona is proper or whether you will need to file in a different bankruptcy district. We will ask your a couple of simple questions during your FREE VIP Bankruptcy Consultation to establish the proper venue for your bankruptcy case:
1. To establish the existence of legitimate ties for bankruptcy-Arizona, have you had your domicile, residence, principal place of business, or principal assets in Arizona for the 180 days prior to filing? If your answer is Yes, then you have sufficient connections with Arizona for a bankruptcy-Arizona filing.
2. If your answer was negative to the preceding question, don’t panic – you have not been winnowed out for elimination. The next question the Pew Law Center team will ask you is: Have you lived in Arizona for the greater part of the 180 days (meaning 91 days or longer) prior to the bankruptcy-Arizona filing? If your answer is Yes, then we can still move forward with a bankruptcy-Arizona filing. If your answer is still No, then there may be a venue problem with filing bankruptcy-Arizona. In other words, you may be attempting to file in the wrong district.
