Is the Same Court Used for Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?

Same Court For Chapter 7 And Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?

Yes. Your selection of a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 petition does not affect the court. However, your primary location in your state will affect which specific court will get your petition. For instance, in some states there is a southern district bankruptcy court, in which you would file if you lived in that part of your state. If you live in Kansas City, Missouri, you would appear in the western district bankruptcy court of that state. However, your choice of using Chapter 7 or 13 for protection has no bearing on the court in which you will be heard.
