will I still be considered a 2nd time bankrupt after 12 years

June 9th, 2008 by Questions

I declared bankruptcy in a different proince in 1995; discharged in 1996. A mortgage broker I talked to who specializes in post-bankruptcy mortgages says that I don`t have to disclose my first bankruptcy since it was more than 10 years ago. Is that true

, A licensed trustee said:

If you have filed bankruptcy once before and you file again now then yes, it will be for the second time. Bankruptcy filings form part of a permanent record with the bankruptcy Court no matter which province (or country) you file in.
