Bankruptcy Search


A bankruptcy search provides details of bankruptcies associated with the subject that is recorded in the specific US district bankruptcy court that is being searched.


Why is there a need for a special bankruptcy search report?

Each of the US federal districts handles bankruptcy cases and most of them handle them in a separate court. Because the federal courts have jurisdiction over all bankruptcy cases, you will not find any bankruptcy search information using a state or county record search, nor criminal record searches. Federal law usually restricts reporting of bankruptcy information to 10 years

What may be reported on a bankruptcy record search?
  • Jurisdiction where record is recorded
  • Case or file number
  • Date filed
  • Parties involved
  • Trustee
  • Type of bankruptcy Search (Chapter 11, Chapter 7, etc.)
  • Conditions

Do take into account that while our goal is to update our instant database with new counties and new county records regularly, it is possible that a traditional on-premise court house search would provide more up-to-date information and could, for example, show that a Bankruptcy Search with a pending case status in our instant data base has been recently dismissed.
