A Chapter 7 bankruptcy cases can be reopened after discharge and case closure under certain circumstances. Many bankruptcy courts routinely grant debtors' motions to amend schedules to list previously omitted creditors. But reopening a closed, no-asset case to add a creditor has no effect on whether the omitted debt is discharged.

Bankruptcies are not supposed to be included on a credit report 10 years after it was filed. There is nothing to prevent someone from accessing bankruptcy court records, newspaper reports of bankruptcy filing, etc., at any time. Most employers and credit-granting entities will just look at the credit reports.

Bankruptcy can be filed at any given time depending on if you have ever filed before and when you filed last. There is no specific date as to when you can actually file.

How do you check your bankruptcy date?

You can contact the office of the bankruptcy attorney who is responsible for filing and managing the bankruptcy case. The bankruptcy court will automatically send the bankruptcy attorney copies of the bankruptcy paperwork. In most situations the bankruptcy attorney or the office paralegals will be able to tell you the date of bankruptcy in person or via telephone. Visit the United States Bankruptcy Court Federal Record Retrieval website. Once at the website, enter your name at the time of filing for bankruptcy, the state where the bankruptcy was filed, and the year you believe the case was filed. Then you will get the full details of your date of the bankruptcy.
