Where do I file my bankruptcy case?

No Attorney FAQ

Bankruptcy cases in the Eastern District of Texas must be filed with the Office of the Bankruptcy Clerk. The Clerk has divisional office locations in Beaumont, Plano, and Tyler. Directions to the divisional offices are available by accessing Locations section of this web site. Each of the three offices is open from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday except federal holidays. In most cases, the appropriate divisional office for your case may be determined by locating, in the information provided on the Divisions and Offices Page, the county of your residence for the greater portion of the preceding 180 days. The counties and divisions that comprise the Eastern District of Texas are codified in 28 U.S.C. §124. They are also listed in Appendix 1001-h (External Operating Procedures - Clerk’s Office) to the Local Rules located elsewhere on this web site.
