Bankruptcy Courts in Georgia
How to Determine the Appropriate Court for Your Hearing
With so many different areas in Georgia, the bankruptcy courts are split up into separate districts. There are three districts and each district has its separate divisions, with each division covering a group of counties. Typically if you are the resident of a county covered by a specific division, you will file their cases in that specific court where your hearings will then be held. If you are uncertain which district or division you fall into and which court you should be attending, an Atlanta bankruptcy lawyer from our team at Khoshnood Law Firm, P.C. can help guide you.
