Will everyone know that I filed bankruptcy?

January 7, 2010

There is no formal announcement made when someone files for bankruptcy, but bankruptcy filings are public records, which means the information is available to anyone who looks for it. However, under normal circumstances, the only people who will know you filed for bankruptcy are the people that you choose to tell.

Note that if you are asked on a job application, you do have to disclose that you filed for bankruptcy.

In general, though, your friends, family members and co-workers won’t know that you filed for bankruptcy unless you choose to tell them.
