You can either contact the bankruptcy court directly to obtain information on viewing the filings in their office or you can set up an account with PACER (Public Access …to Court Electronic Records) at https://pacer.login.uscourts.gov/cgi-bin/login.pl?court_id=00idx. If you elect to go with PACER there is a charge for accessing the records. Once you have signed up, you will need to know in what district the bankruptcy was filed and at least the first and last names of the filers.

Yes, but the bankruptcy will be a factor in your background investigation to determine your fitness to be a law enforcement officer. Officers are expected to manage their pers…onal affairs properly. An officer who cannot manage his personal finances is not only a discredit to his department, but is a potential risk for corruption. If an officer is desperate for money, he may be open to bribes to do unlawful things or to permit unlawful behavior.

Some debts cannot be cleared (child support, judgments, certain student loans, most notably. Basically all loans other than government ones are private and nothing special). A… list of debts AND assets that can't be cleared or taken is below. I'm not sure what the above intended, but it is incorrect to think there is any quality or quantity of debt required to file. Many people go BK on just credit card debt (probably the most common thing in fact), with no secured or priority debt. (In fact, generally a credit card co that gets a judgment and can secure it to a property of yours...probably won't have the BK clear it, as judgments aren't covered in BK). But you should also note that BK doesn't just eliminate debts...or debts of your choice. You go bankrupt, not the debt. It involves all of your assets and all of your debts. In basic form...all of your assets (again minus some few exempt things), are surrendered and liquidated with the money used to pay as much of the debts as possible (all debts are given a priority - first as secured like a car loan or unsecured which means against everything generally)...some are paid more, some less)...any resulting deficiency may be eliminated (wiped clean). You do not get to get rid of the debt AND keep what you may have gotten with it, (or invested/paid for elsewhere, instead of paying the amount owed). Exemptions under Federal law, which may change a little in State applications by the Federal BK Court you file in: Personal and Real Property: (1) Household: Up to $425.00 per item not to exceed a total of $8,625.00 (includes animals, appliances, books, crops, furnishings, household goods, clothing, musical instruments) (2) Jewelry: Up to $1,075.00 (3) Vehicles: Up to $2,575.00 (4) Work tools (implements, books and tools of trade): Up to $1,625.00 (5) Health aides (wheelchair, etc.): Unlimited (6) Burial plot: Up to $16,500.00 (in lieu of real estate exemption) (7) Real estate (house, co-op or mobile home): Up to $16,150.00 (8) Any property: Up to $8,075.00 of unused portion of real estate exemption Wages, Pensions, Recoveries and Benefits: (1) Wages: None (2) Wrongful death funds: Amount needed for support (3) Personal injury funds: Up to $16,500.00 (excluding that for pain and suffering or pecuniary loss) (4) Lost earnings payments: Unlimited amount (5) Retirement benefits: Amount needed for support (6) Alimony / child support: Amount needed for support (7) Unemployment compensation: Unlimited amount (8) Veterans benefits: Unlimited amount (9) Social security benefits: Unlimited amount (10) Public assistance: Unlimited amount (11) Crime victims compensation: Unlimited amount Insurance: (1) Disability: Unlimited amount (2) Unemployment benefits: Unlimited amount (3) Unmatured life insurance: Unlimited amount (4) Life insurance policy loan value, dividends or interest: Up to $8,625 (5) Life insurance proceeds: Amount needed for support If you're doing a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, you can't discharge:Taxes and tax liensStudent loansDomestic support obligations (child support and alimony)Luxury goods over $500 purchased within 90 days of filingFines or penalties of government agenciesCash advances of more than $750 taken within 70 days of filingFraudulent debtsWillful or malicious injury to anotherDeath or personal injury from the operation of a motor vehicle, aircraft or vessel while intoxicatedCondominium or cooperative association feesDebts not listed on your schedules Debts arising from fraud or maliciousness are not automatically excepted from discharge. The creditor must make a request to the court to except these types of obligations; otherwise they will be discharged
it means to not include, or to leave out.
The three words Public, Office and Trust carry great weight and imply sense of duty and moral responsibility. It is always a great privilege to hold an office, more so a… public office and to render service honestly and fairly without fear or favor. The greater or higher is the office, the greater is the responsibility. The word office is synonymous with duty, with act of worship. The proposition : 'Public office is a public trust' is a worthy maxim, can be used as a touch-stone for judging actions of those who claim to be public servants or who talk high to serve the people, the community and the nation. The higher is the office, the greater is the authority or power derived from the office. Misuse of power or abuse of authority is not only breach of trust but also a public crime and a moral slur.
Public Office is a public trust. Public Officers and employees must at all times be accountable to the people, serve them with utmost responsibility, integrity, loyalty and ef…ficiency, act with patriotism and justice, and lead modest lives.
Yes, absolutely. It is and always be as a federal court proceeding. Many information reporting services compile and maintain these records too.

The answer is "it depends". The states constitution may or may not impose restrictions for anyone with a Felony Conviction from holding public office. You would need to check …your states constitution for specific details. Some states permit people to hold office if the conviction was more than 10 or 20 years prior. Also, some states specifically prohibit anyone from holding public office if they were convicted of a "crime which involves deceit, misappropriation of resources or breach of fiduciary responsibilites. Check your states constitution for the rules regarding your state or local area.
A public office is usually a position that is elected or appointed by the government. The governor, the president, and US Congressperson are all examples of public offices….
Probably not because of the Bk, but because of unpaid rent, yes.
