Is bankruptcy information available to the public? Can anyone look at it?


Unless sealed, all documents filed in a bankruptcy case are available for public viewing. Information contained in bankruptcy case documents is a matter of public record.  Documents may be accessed in the Clerk's Office during regular business hours, or 24 hours a day via internet access to PACER.  Debtors should note that filing a bankruptcy may adversely affect their credit rating.  Credit reporting agencies regularly collect and disclose bankruptcy data to the public.
