A: Typically, you are able to seek employment in another state and move to the other state during a bankruptcy, but you are required to stay current on your plan payments and keep the Court and the Trustee updated as to your home address and change in circumstances. You should also speak with an attorney to determine whether you might be eligible to convert your Chapter 13 to a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, due to your change in income.
