You must be a resident of the state in which you intend to file your bankruptcy case for at least 90 days before filing your petition, or if you have not lived in your current residence for 90 days, then in the state in which you last resided (or had your principal place of business or where the majority of your principal assets are located) for a majority of the prior 180 days.
For example, if you moved to Massachusetts less than 90 days ago, you may only file your case in the state where you previously resided (or which had been the principal place of business or has been the location of your principal assets) for a majority of the prior 180 days.
Similarly, if you moved away from Massachusetts less than 90 days ago, but resided in Massachusetts for the majority of last 180 days, then you must file your petition in the Massachusetts bankruptcy court.
