Where will I file for bankruptcy?

Bankruptcy is handled by the federal courts. This means that you will not be filing in a local courthouse. You will have hearings in either Greenbelt or Baltimore. Occasionally, the hearings in western Maryland are held in Hagerstown, and the hearings for the Baltimore cases are in Salisbury. While it may seem daunting to have to attend hearings in a federal court, your bankruptcy attorney will be well versed in the procedures.
