Bankruptcy records are obtainable (publicly) via two sources: the VCIS phone records retrieval system, and in some civil court records databases.

Filing for bankruptcy obviously triggers a number of databases used by reporting agencies, legal archives and other government bodies. However, not all of this data is made public.

In general, searching civil court records is your best bet for finding information regarding a bankruptcy, but the availability of actual bankruptcy cases varies on a county by county basis. (Click on the applicable state listed below to see if there's any bankruptcy cases covered by the state's various county court clerks and databases).

Other than that, you can use the VCIS system ("Voice Case Information System"), which is an automated service available via phone. To locate the applicable VCIS numbers in your area, please select a state below to begin.

We'd like to remind you that if you are an employer or a landlord and are using the following resources as part of your screening process, you should be aware that the FCRA has very specific guidelines in regards to how public information can be used to determine eligibility for employment or tenancy.

Please review them prior to using any public information to determine a hiring or leasing decision.

PACER Database - For a description of how to use PACER to access court records, please see the criminal records page. PACER coverage includes civil cases, some of which involve creditor vs. debtor cases, financial judgments & bankruptcy filings.

VCIS - short for Voice Case Information System. You simply call the applicable number and follow the prompts to retrieve records. Search by case number, name or SSN over the phone. In the event that a court doesn't use VCIS, you can call during normal business hours to request records directly.

Please click on a state (below) to view its applicable VCIS phone numbers...
