Bankruptcy filings are public as a part of court records. That being said, unless someone is deliberately looking into those court records, the only people who will know about your bankruptcy filing are you, your attorney, the court, the creditors, credit bureaus, and trustees. Of course, any scenarios in which your credit score is checked, such as in making purchases or signing up for a new credit card, will reveal your bankruptcy record. Additionally, if your wages are being garnished, your employer will be aware, as will former spouses if they are receiving spousal or child support.
