Bankruptcy records are public documents. You are not covered by any privacy regulations, federal or state. If someone wants to learn if you have previously been discharged, they can search bankruptcy filings to retrieve that information. They can use the federal judiciary's service, PACER, the National Archives or any number of websites that allow anyone to retrieve all public information surrounding personal or corporate public bankruptcy records for a reasonable fee ($6.00-$15.00). No sensitive personal information will be released to 3rd parties but they will learn the particulars regarding your bankruptcy case.
