I am facing bankruptcy. If I file, can I leave the country and take a job abroad? I have dual citizenship.

Rob is correct. If you are a flight risk, your Bankruptcy Trustee may also issue a PACE alert to ensure you can not travel internationally without his/her permission. You can submit a request to you Trustee though, and provided it has merit and may benefit your creditors (e.g. earning enough income which would support income contributions to your Bankrupt Estate) your Bankruptcy Trustee may make an exception and allow the travel provided you check in, say on a fortnightly basis, or something like that. Each case is obviously assessed with its own merits, but to answer your question, yes there is a possibility depending on the circumstances.
