The only parties who are officially notified when you file for bankruptcy are your creditors, the bankruptcy court, and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). Creditors can report the filing on your credit record, so it can appear there for a limited time. Your family, employer, and friends do not receive any official notice of your bankruptcy filing; however, bankruptcy filings are public record.
