If you plan to move out of state within the next three months, it is usually better to wait to file unless your 341 meeting would occur before your move. This is because:
- You will need to return to the state in which you filed to attend this meeting and any other required hearings, and this could be an expensive hassle.
- The court will have your filing address on file, and you may miss important notices they send to that address if you have moved.
If you need to file before you move to prevent creditors from attempting to take action against you, you can certainly do so. Just remember the risks above when you are making your decision of where to file.
