Can we file for bankruptcy if we live overseas? Posted on August 23, 2010

I am in the military and am currently stationed in Germany. My wife and I are Maryland residents. I am thinking about filing for a chapter 7 bankruptcy because I have about $30,000 in credit card debt. I have consulted legal aid and they tell me that I cannot file for a bankruptcy because I am not physically in the United States. What can I do?
