What Does It Mean That a Bankruptcy Is Public Record?
Filing for bankruptcy can be an overwhelming experience for many people. Even though filing for bankruptcy is a difficult choice to make, it does not have to be a shameful one. It is important to understand that when you declare bankruptcy, it becomes public record. This means that anyone who takes the time to research your name may find out about your financial situation.
So, what does it mean that a bankruptcy is public record? Generally speaking, it means any information related to your bankruptcy will become part of the public court records where anyone can look at them. This includes the petition, schedules of assets and liabilities, order of discharge and other documents associated with your case. Additionally, this information may appear on online search results or in credit reports if requested by third parties such as potential lenders or employers during background checks.
