For those of you who have filed bankruptcy the Federal Court system allows public access to records: PACER. PACER stands for Public Access to Court Electronic Records.
There is a cost of $0.10 (ten cents) per page. Please check the PACER link for more cost information. It used to be that you were not billed until you incurred $10 (ten dollars) worth of charges, which is 100 pages. That's a whole lot of pages!!! What is nice is you can follow your case including the discharge.
It is NOT necessary that you try PACER or sign up for it. There may be a point where you are interested in your case and if so, then PACER is your access point. You WILL be receiving hard copies of these filings in the mail from the court and your attorney (if represented) will also have copies in your case file at his/her law office, including copies of correspondence. I do recommend that you hold on to all copies of everything related to your bankruptcy. You will have work papers, copies of documents, and correspondence which should be held on to!!! Just keep them safely tucked away in a file of envelope.
Hope this helps.
