WILL MY FRIENDS FIND OUT I FILED BANKRUPTCY?
Be aware the stigma is gone when it come to filing bankruptcy. Withe state of the economy, bankruptcy is a respectable option which sometimes is the best option for many people. Nevertheless, unless you are a pubic figure or a big corporation, the chances are very good that the only people who will know about your bankruptcy is you and your creditors. Though it is public record, a person would have to specifically seek out this information. There is no requirement in the Bankruptcy Code to public the fact that you filed bankruptcy. Most people just don’t care.
