Name Published when you go bankrupt?

May 19th, 2006 by Questions

I am wondering who knows about you filing bankruptcy? Is your name published anywhere for example the local paper or is your employer notified? I am wondering how private this would be. Thanks

If your total non-exempt assets are worth less than $10,000, your a bankruptcy would be a summary administration bankruptcy, which means your name is not published in the newspaper. Bankruptcy is not private; anyone who does a credit check on you will be able to see that you went bankrupt. For more information, contact a licensed trustee to fully explore your options.
