If I recently movedout of state, how I can file bankruptcy if I have not yet established residency in my new state?

I recently lived in 1 state for about 8 months after living in a few other states. I could not find a job in that state so I moved to back where I am from. However, I have not re-established residency as of yet because I am still looking for more than part-time work. What is the time frame after establishing residency that you can file for bankruptcy? And what constitutes residency in order to file bankruptcy? Is it possible to still file bankruptcy in the state that I just moved from?
