How can I find if someone filed for bankruptcy?

bankruptcy

 

Obtain bankruptcies filings in all United States District Courts (USDC). You must provide search subject’s social security number. To better help you understand the bankruptcy codes, they are as follows:

  • Chapter 7 bankruptcy comes under the liquidation category. It’s called liquidation because the bankruptcy trustee may take and sell (“liquidate”) some of your property to pay back some of your debt. However, you may keep property that is protected (also called “exempt”) under state law.
  • Chapter 13 is most commonly used by consumers. In Chapter 13 bankruptcies, you keep all of your property but must make monthly payments over three to five years to repay all or some of your debt.
