The State of Oklahoma is divided into three federal districts, the Western District, the Eastern District, and the Northern District. Depending on which county you live, determines the proper court, or venue, to file your case. You must file your bankruptcy case in the district in which you have been domiciled for the better part of 180 days. So, if you have moved from one district to another, you may have to file in the court for the district you moved from rather than the district you moved to, all depending on when you moved.
To keep your case from being dismissed for lack of venue, you should contact an Oklahoma bankruptcy attorney to help you.
