United States Bankruptcy Courts

Article III of the United States Constitution establishes the judicial branch as one of the three separate and distinct branches of the federal government.  The Supreme Court is the highest court in the federal judiciary. Congress has established two levels of federal courts under the Supreme Court: the trial courts and the appellate courts.

The United States district courts are the trial courts of the federal court system. Within limits set by Congress and the Constitution, the district courts have jurisdiction to hear nearly all categories of federal cases, including both civil and criminal matters. There are 94 federal judicial districts, including at least one district in each state, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Each district includes a United States bankruptcy court as a unit of the district court. The U.S. territories of the Virgin Islands, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Islands have district courts that hear federal cases, including bankruptcy cases. 

Federal courts have exclusive jurisdiction over bankruptcy cases.
