WHO CAN FIND OUT I FILED BANKRUPTCY?
If you are contemplating bankruptcy as a way to resolve unpaid debt, you may be wondering who will be able to find out you filed. When an individual files for bankruptcy it becomes a matter of public record. A bankruptcy filing will remain on your credit report for up to 10 years after the date of discharge, so any individual or organization who runs your credit will be able to see you filed for bankruptcy. This does not mean all of your friends, family, co-workers and others will ever become aware of your financial situation. It simply means the information is available should someone choose to search for it. In most cases, unless you personally advise others of the fact you filed for bankruptcy, they will never be alerted to or made aware of the fact that you have done so.
