Yes, Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is public information. To get this information you would have to know the website to go to, create an account, and link a credit card to it so you can be charged for documents you download. One of the more pervasive concerns Americans, suffering from overwhelming debt have is, is bankruptcy public information and who will know I filed Chapter 7 Bankruptcy? We get that concern completely. But, like most concerns, the way it works in reality is not what you think.

There are many things out there in the world that are public information. Divorce proceedings and criminal proceedings are all public information. When is the last time you went down to the county to review someone’s divorce proceedings? When is the last time you went down to the county to review someone’s criminal file? I bet you never have. Get my point?

I have a theory on this. You see, I think we all have our own crosses to carry and are worried about our own lives. We don’t have time to worry about someone else’s problems too. I have been doing bankruptcy work for over 22 years and I have yet to meet a single person who said they actually spent time looking up other people’s criminal or divorce records.

Besides, I don’t make apologies for protecting my family either. If you don’t like the fact that I intend on protecting my family, I frankly don’t care. At the end of the day, we all want to pay our bills. But if you force me to make a decision between a) paying the bills or b) buying groceries, I intend on buying groceries.
