If you have an ongoing divorce action in a state, you are better off filing for bankruptcy in that same state.  You cannot file for divorce in a state unless you have resided in the state for a certain period of time.  The same applies when filing for bankruptcy.

In Connecticut, you may not be eligible for file for bankruptcy unless you have lived in the state for over 90 days.  It would be best to consult with an experienced attorney who has dealt with these issues in the past.  An experienced attorney can consider the specific facts of your case and educate you on the best course of action to take.
