Will People Find Out If I File for Bankruptcy?

Bankruptcy Tips Consumers Should Know

When you file personal bankruptcy on Long Island, it is highly unlikely that anone will find out about it unless you tell themWritten by Craig D. Robins, Esq.

No.  When you file for personal bankruptcy on Long Island, the local newspapers will not publish information about your case. 

Even though a Long Island bankruptcy filing is technically a public record, there is no periodical, newspaper or publication on Long Island that will publish this information. 

That means that the only way to find out that someone filed for bankruptcy is to search the Central Islip Bankruptcy Court records to get this information.  This is very unlikely. 

Thus, if you are embarrassed about filing for bankruptcy and you are worried that people might find out about your bankruptcy filing, you can rest easier.  Your friends, family, relatives, employer and fellow employees should not know that you filed for bankruptcy relief unless you tell them.

If you need to file bankruptcy, you are not alone.  Over one million Americans seek bankruptcy relief each year.  Thousands of Long Island consumers file bankruptcy each year.
