Default Re: filing chapter 7 from Canada

I wish to inform you that the provisions of 11 U.S.C. §109 and 28 U.S.C. §1408 will have jurisdiction in this matter. As you have property in the United States, you may file for bankruptcy even while residing in Canada. However, you may need to travel to the United States in order to attend the Meeting of the Creditors, and if necessary, attend follow up meetings, hearings, and examinations. A bankruptcy petitioner is required to cooperate with the Trustee and answer any required questions before a discharge could be granted. There are exceptions under which a Trustee or the Court may grant exemption from personal appearance. You may contact an attorney and seek guidance.
