Bankruptcy is extremely complicated and it is strongly recommended that you use an attorney to file. Many attorneys offer free consultations to tell you more about bankruptcy and if it is helpful for you to file. Based on the county in which you live, you are assigned to a particular Federal Division of a particular Federal District of a particular Federal Circuit. Once you find out what Division your county is assigned to, you have to sign and file a bankruptcy petition in the Clerk of the Bankruptcy Court for the appropriate Division. This gets your case started. After filing, the Bankruptcy Court will notify you of the date and time of your hearing. Please note that nothing in this posting or in any other posting constitutes legal advice; this is simply my understanding of the facts and law, which I do not warrant, and I am not suggesting any course of action or inaction to any person. Speak to a lawyer for specific advice. If you have any questions, please refer to a lawyer in your jurisdiction. Thanks!

Chapter 13 bankruptcy can help a person by saving them from legal actions from debt collectors. When a person files bankruptcy, all debt collections and lawsuits are stopped so a person can keep their assets like homes or cars.

That may be true in the UK (though companies are more likely to go into "administration" there) and in some other countries. However, in the U.S. virtually all types of insolvency are now called "bankruptcy", whether for a person or a company; "liquidation" is just the traditional description of Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

Every person who files a bankruptcy case is concerned about who will find out about it. It is true that all bankruptcy filings are a matter of public record, but this does not mean it is easy for others to learn about your case. The two main ways another person can learn about your filing is to either go to the bankruptcy courthouse where you filed and conduct a search, or have the required credentials to obtain a PACER account.

Your question needs to be addressed to an attorney familiar with bankruptcy laws as well as fraud statutes. You could begin by informing the bankruptcy trustee. That is the person assigned by the bankruptcy court to determine the eligibility of the bankruptcy applicant. If you can't find out who this person is, try calling the bankruptcy court. Bankruptcy is a federal court issue. There are usually two bankruptcy courts per state.
