Where do I file for bankruptcy if I haven’t lived in the same state or district for the last two years?

You must wait until you have lived in a state for 91 days before you can file your bankruptcy case there. If you lived in your current state for more than 91 days but less than two years, you will file in your current state but use the exemptions from where you lived for the majority of the 180 day period immediately previous to the 2 year period before you filed.
