A: It is supposed to be the place where you spent the most of the last 180 days. If it is all in one district, it really does not matter. If it was in multiple states, then it is an issue.

A: Pursuant to the statute, you must have resided within the State of New Jersey for the past 180 days. or which District (Vicinage) you would be in is based upon your zip code. As you have to present your Driver's License, I would put that address, as you get you mail at a Post Office Box.

A: A P.O. Box for mailing is fine, but you must list a phyiscal residence on your bankrupty petition. You really need to retain to an experienced bankruptcy attorney to represent you. During this pandemic, you have a choice of either seeing your attorney in person or by way of a secure state of the art Zoom Video Conference. So you don’t have to be restricted by geography anymore in terms of choosing an attorney. You can “Meet” your attorney online for an initial strategy session from the comfort of your own home. Through mail, e-mail and electronic filing almost everything can be done without leaving your home, for most types of cases. Pick the best attorney you can find and remember one rule: a good attorney is generally never cheap, and a cheap attorney is generally never good so don't choose based on price.
