Will a debtor’s family, friends or employer find out about the bankruptcy filing?

Although the bankruptcy case file is a public record that is accessible from the internet, usually only creditors will learn of the filing. Current employers and governmental agencies cannot legally discriminate against a debtor because of a bankruptcy filing. Employers may be notified if the debtor’s chapter 13 payments are made by payroll deduction.
