FAQ #9: Will My Name Appear in the Newspaper if I file bankruptcy?
No. While bankruptcy is a matter of public record, your name will not be published in the paper. Certain redacted records are available at the bankruptcy court, but can only be obtained in person. However, certain issues which commonly arise in the context of bankruptcy, such as foreclosure, do require the publication of a legal notice, often in the local newspaper serving the debtor’s residence.
