In a bankruptcy all creditors automatically file with the trustee a list of all transactions in the previous three months. However, if the creditor believes you have abused the credit cards, they can review transactions for at least a year in the past, and longer if warranted.

If you believe this is an issue, you should discuss this with your bankruptcy trustee to fully explore your options.
