Privacy of bankruptcy information
April 28th, 2008 by Questions
If I file for personal bankruptcy what information about me is public and how long is that information public?
While the information is public are there any safeguards against improper use? Example: Finding out the names of all discharged bankrupts in North York in the past three years and targetting them for predatory loans.

Your bankruptcy filing is considered public infomration – it is a regulatory procedure admisnistered in part by the Courts. That being said there si no public directory of persons that have filed bankruptcy. You may pay to search for a specific person in the government’s database, but you cannot do a general scan.
