There may be more than one place where you can file your bankruptcy. The statute indicates you can file where you reside, where you are domiciled or where your principal assets are located. Lets say your permanant address is in Willingboro New Jersey. That is where you have lived and that is where you intend on living. Willingboro NJ is therefore your domicile. But what if you have an ill mother living in Northeast Philadelphia Pennsylvania and you moved in with her for the last nine months to help her. The Philadelphia address is your residence and you could file in either place. If you own, for example, a vacation home in North Carolina and that is your most valuable asset, you could also use North Carolina as the venue to file and file there. For most people they can only file in one place. But as you see, that is not always the case.
