Bankruptcy Report

A bankruptcy report provides details of bankruptcies associated with the subject that is recorded in the specific US district bankruptcy court that is being searched.

Why is there a need for a special bankruptcy report search?

Each of the US federal districts handles bankruptcy cases and most of them handle them in a separate court. Because the federal courts have jurisdiction over all bankruptcy cases, you will not find any bankruptcy information using a state or county record search, nor criminal record searches. Federal law usually restricts reporting of bankruptcy information to 10 yearsarrow down

What may be reported on a bankruptcy record search?

  • Jurisdiction where record is recorded
  • Case or file number
  • Date filed
  • Parties involved
  • Trustee
  • Type of bankruptcy (Chapter 11, Chapter 7, etc.)
  • Conditions

Do take into account that while our goal is to update our instant database with new counties and new county records regularly, it is possible that a traditional on-premise court house search would provide more up-to-date information and could, for example, show that a criminal record with a pending case status in our instant data base has been recently dismissed.

Common questions about Bankruptcy Report

Why do bankruptcy records not show up on a regular federal civil search?

US federal districts handle bankruptcy cases in a separate court. We can carry out a search for any bankruptcy associated with an applicant that is recorded in the specific US District Court that you request. The information returned may include case or file number, date filed, type of bankruptcy (i.e. Chapter 11, Chapter 7, etc.), discharge date, and names listed as petitioners.
