It depends on who "you" are. If the person has lived in the same state or part of a state for his adult life, you can search the records of the bankruptcy court for that state or district within the state. If the person has moved around a bit, you can only find out by getting access to a credit report. which most ordinary people cannot do. Somelocal newspapers publish local bankruptcy filings, but not all of those newspapers put their contents online.

Answer Filing bankruptcy creates an "automatic stay" which is a court order stopping most efforts to collect a debt, including lawsuits. Whether or not you are e…ligible for a discharge of the particular debt depends on the type of claim filed against you. In the case of an auto accident, liability for death or injury resulting from driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs cannot be discharged. The decision to file bankruptcy and which type of bankrupty to file should be made after consultation with a qualified attorney. You must another an number of factors into consideration such as the amount of your dischargeable debt, value of your assets, income and expenses.
Yes, a person is still bondable. They just have to be able to pay their bond or have a clear background check to be bondable.
There are several ways to file bankruptcy. You can use an attorney or you can use a document preparation company. They both have their ups and downs. Financially the preparer …is less expensive..normally less than $1000 to file, where as an attorney can be up to $4k. here is a website that might help www.thecasualbankruptcy.webs.com

A short, rough primer: BK is always done under FEDERAL Laws, in a Federal Bankrutpcy Court. Basically State makes little difference. (Yes the BK Courts operating in certa…in areas have certain special exemptions and such, minor in the overall, generally intended to make things adhere to the local laws and customs better). In a personal bankruptcy, YOU go bankrupt. Not a debt, not a loan...not a car...not a this or that. ALL of your assets, of all types, MUST be disclosed and reported in BK, and ALL of your liabilities/debts must be too. No exceptions, no picking and choosing. They are all, always involved in some way. The court will then order each of them in priorities according to the laws. Some things may be exempt from use or discharge (like your personal furntiure and retirement accounts are exempt and child support cannot be discharged) - and the rest may be used. With one to pay the other. (All possible creditors are contacted and asked to say what they are owed....you may be required to even take advertisments out to make sure everyone is notified). Any deal you've done for several years is open to scruitiny and review. The court can reverse them, take them out of the BK, or even have them prosecuted as trying to defraud your creditors. (So, no you can't sell your boat to your brother and then declare BK). Debts secured by an asset (say a car) have first call or right to the money received from that asset. If it isn't enough to pay the debt, the remainder of that sdebt becomes a general or unsecured claim against the BK., and has a chance to payment on that level too (albeit a lower priority than those who have yet to receive anything). The end/remaining amount that can't be satisfied is generally discharged by the court...meaning you no longer owe it. You get a fresh basically debt free start....many of those you owe don't get paid what they had expected and relied on, if anything. There are many other considerations too. BK will severly hurt your ability to get credit for a very long time for example. It is on your credit report for at least 10 years...and employers refer to that too, as do landlords and more. Many do not rust people with bankruptcies in their past, especially in the last few years. Many more things. Not disclosing all items is frequently trie and easily discovered, in which case - as you are swearing under oath to the court you included all info - your case is dismissed, and regularly, fraud charges are pursued. (Courts don't take to being lied to well). Many seem to fall into the trap thinking that they can trick or change the system. It simply ain't going to happen. The courts, Judges, laws, bankers, all those zillions of attornies, etc, have been through this thousands of times for many, many years. The processes are fairly well worked through and prepared for tricks and games. It is unlikely you would discover one that hasn't been tried a zillion times before! The Cos that claim they can change your record, or make magic happen (either before or after BK), are scams, and getting caught doing something unsavory (intentional or not), other than screwing up your bankruptcy filing, is frequently considered and persued criminally. (Think your financial troubles are bad, try adding in criminal ones). The legal process and system is demanding even for those experienced with it. Many of your creditors will have an attorney to assure they get as much as possible, even groups of lawyers, who specialize only in bankruptcy. Simply you should/better/need to have one too.
It is when an indivdual (or married couple) file for bankruptcy rather than a business or corporation.
You report all assets and all liabilities. However, government insured or backed student loans are NOT dischargeable.

Can a creditor file an adversarial claim in bankruptcy court in a personal 7 bankruptcy for something that they contend occurred during a business bankruptcy 2 years previous. No claim was filed then.?
No, a creditor is required to file a claim if seeking payment, otherwise that claim is considered waived. So in this case. if there was no claim, then it was waived and the de…bt discharged. But even if it was filed, it would have been discharged in the business BK.
By checking the PACER court records system. If there was a BK, it would be on the PACER system.
Probably, assuming they are actually bankrupt. If they are not actually bankrupt, then the automatic stay will delay the small claims court for a while, but the person who fil…ed for bankruptcy is going to end up in even more hot water with the bankruptcy court.
