Individuals contemplating whether to file for bankruptcy often wonder wo will know that I filed for bankruptcy? Debtors who file for bankruptcy in Los Angeles are often concerned that employers, family members, friends or others will find out that they have filed for bankruptcy. The reality is that outside of notifying all of your creditors so that you can discharge your debt, most others will never find out about your bankruptcy filing. Your employers Human Resources department will be notified only if you wish to stop a garnishment on your paycheck. As for family and friends they will only be notified if you tell them about your filing or they are savvy enough to figure out how to use an online searchable database called PACER, which is usually only utilized by bankruptcy attorneys.
