707 "applicable state" determination

Discussion in 'Bankruptcy' started by Mark T. B. Carroll, Oct 18, 2009.

  1. For the median income means test for chapter 7, how is the "applicable
    state" determined? What if the debtor has recently moved?

    There's effectively a 91-day test for determining venue for the case,
    but that's a completely different part of the law.

  2. Advice from elsewhere suggests that it's actually the venue that
    determines the applicable state. (Instead of which state's exemptions
    apply, or whatever.)
