I Need to Move During My Bankruptcy. Will That Affect My Case?

It’s perfectly fine to move during a bankruptcy, but there are a few things to keep in mind so you don’t lose important mail: 

On the bankruptcy petition, it will ask you for 2 addresses: your physical address on the date of filing, and your mailing address. 

If you know you’ll be moving, you can use a P.O. Box as your mailing address to keep things simple. If you don’t know, or don’t have a P.O. Box, your attorney can file a notice of change of address. 

There are some people who need to file bankruptcy when they don’t even have an address. This is actually fairly common – people’s lives are often in flux when they decide to file. They may be living with friends or in their car. If that’s your situation, your attorney can usually list the address of a friend or family member, so it’s never a reason not to file.

A change of address is one of the reasons it’s extremely important to have a bankruptcy attorney who cares about each individual client, including you. And here’s why:

As a Memphis bankruptcy lawyer, I know some attorneys ignore their clients once they file. It’s hard for them to get a return phone call, let alone a notice of change of address.
