Does my Bankruptcy become Public?

January 21, 2015


Although when you file for Bankruptcy it is a “public record,” it is not published in the local paper. Unlike a foreclosure, which would be published in the Grand Rapids or other local newspaper, this does not happen in a Bankruptcy. For that reason, if you file a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13  Repayment Plan, your neighbors will not see it in the paper.

If you have any questions regarding Bankruptcy and the privacy around it, please do not hesitate to contact my law office at (616) 920-0555.
