Recent bankruptcy filings for personal Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 actions cannot widely be accessed via most related websites. There is one way that might help. If you are interested in learning of recent filings in a particular state or area in a larger state, you can search the major newspaper(s) online in your subject area. They normally publish recent filings (at least the corporate filings) in the business section, often in the Saturday or Sunday editions. These published records should only be around one to two months old. If you are looking for recent bankruptcy filings for companies online, try bankruptcydata.com for some good information .
