How to find out if someone has declared bankruptcy

Short and to the point. Does anyone know how to find out if a person has declared bankruptcy in Missouri?

It should be a matter of public record. You might try checking the county records where the person lives.

check their name online probate court records. Or you may have to go to the court house to find out. But most places you can get to the probate court online and find out all sorts of things.

Wouldn't running a credit check show it?

And if you are a creditor to them, you should get the papers in the mail for the bankruptcy hearing.

The probate court handles it? I only think of them dealing with estates after a death.

Far as I know that's only if you are listed as being a creditor. Sometimes people "forget" or they declare bankruptcy for only debts that are on the books. If a creditor is not listed they are not supposed to be included in the bankruptcy resolution. Those debts are not supposed to be dismissed or renegotiated.

Probate courts dont exist in Missouri and probate issues are handled by the Circuit Courts.

Try casenet, they would have what your looking for if they filed in Missouri:

there should be a public anouncement like in the back of newspapers. this is so people who are creditors but not listed can be notified and then they can file a claim. whitout being listed as creditor or filing a claim if you are a creditor you are outta of luck.

Is there a compelling reason why you don't simply ask that person?

Lawyers can find out. Amusing story: We bought some property from some siblings. We'll call the man John Smith, he had a common name but that's not it. My lawyer aske if he had ever gone into bankruptcy. I doubted it and said so and asked what was there to be done. Lawyer just said he would have to sign a statement saying he hadn't been in bankruptcy, which is what happened. At the closing the lawyer asked "John Smith" if he was the one that had been in bankruptcy. "John" replied that, no, they had always been too poor to go through bankruptcy. Lot of truth in that.

Bankruptcy is handled on the federal level. There will be a record at the courthouse and what bankruptcy was filed and if it was discharged. They will also be on the credit report for ten years from date of discharge. Chapter 7 is complete dissolution of debt and chapter 13 is reorganization of debt with some repayment over a short period of time. If your not a secured lender then most likely sol. If you were not notified by the court then the debt is still valid. Not a lawyer but have been through this on both sides. It sucks.

You could sell them something and accept a check for the pay.
