Jurisdiction & Where to File

For cases filed non-electronically, all petitions, lists, schedules, statements and other documents required by the Bankruptcy Court to commence a case shall be filed with the Clerk's Office in the division where the principal place of business, domicile, residence, or principal assets of the debtor have been located for such period of time as required by 28 U.S.C. §1408. If the Court determines that a case has been filed in the incorrect division, the Court may transfer the case to the correct division without notice. All papers tendered for filing after the commencement of a case shall be filed with the Clerk's Office in the division where the case is pending. (Local Rule B-1002-1)

 

To locate the proper division for filing, select the county in which the residence or principle assets are located.

Note:  cases from counties assigned to the Terre Haute Division that are not filed electronically must be filed in the Evansville Division.
