The following is one of the several ways to check your Bankruptcy Status. Check it out:
- A website of Public Access to Court Electronic Records(PACER) is available to the general public to view their bankruptcy details. This website has all the details from the bankruptcy courts all across the United States. You will need valid login details to acquire the information. If you do not have an ID or password, you can easily register yourself on their website, with only minimal details like your personal information.
- The registration is completed after you have added in your credit card details. This is essential to acquire the password, which will be sent to you e-mail ID that you provided during the registration.
If you do not have or wish not to mention your e-mail, the password will be sent to you via mailing service to your home address. Though the registration for PACER is absolutely free, they will, however, charge you 8 cents a page for viewing the pages of the documents. The fee is only applicable to up to 30 pages. There will also be a 10 cents per page charge for printing any soft copies of documents.
Other documents like the transcripts of court proceedings are free of cost. The party along with the lawyers, are subject to receiving free electronic copies of the documents necessary to the case.
- Once you have received the password and validated your account, you can use the login details to enter the website to access the list of bankruptcy counts in the U.S. Search through the list to find the court where your case was lodged. The courts have been segregated into categories of states that they belong to. You can easily locate your court based on the state.
Another way is to locate the website of your bankruptcy court and (as many courts are linked to the PACER website) you can access your details through the link, providing your login details.
- Once you have located the court, put in the required information like Social Security number, your name and date of birth to locate your case. All the information related to your case, like the status of the case, petitioner’s and attorney’s names etc., will be available for you to review.
This is how you can easily check your bankruptcy status. Besides, if you need to get a car after bankruptcy, there are ways to do it.
