What are Arizona Bankruptcy Records?

In Arizona, the United States Bankruptcy Court, District of Arizona, hears all bankruptcy cases occurring within the state and maintains case records resulting from these court proceedings. Bankruptcy cases in Arizona are filed in the federal courts, not the state courts, as bankruptcies are federal matters and handled as directed under USC Title 11. The records of these proceedings typically contain information about the parties involved in a case, as well as other case and financial information. Although bankruptcy records are accessible through the federal court or remotely via the federally-operated site, PACER, third-party sites such as CourtRecords.Us also make these records publicly available.

What do Arizona Bankruptcy Records Contain?

Arizona bankruptcy records include court dockets, transcripts, claims registers, court proceedings, and case documents and contain the following information:

  • Name of the debtor
  • Name/phone number of the debtor’s attorney
  • Financial information of the debtor
  • Assets, if available
  • Creditor information (names, addresses, and amount in debt)
  • Trustee information
  • Case number
  • Case status
  • Filing date
  • Type of petition and chapter
  • Presiding judge’s information
  • Final disposition

Are Bankruptcy Records Public Information?

Per 11 USC 107(a), bankruptcy records are available for public viewing or copying unless access to a record, or record information, is prevented by federal law or court order. Under 11 USC §107 and 11 USC §112, the following information may not be disseminated to the public:

  • Any information relating to minor children
  • Company trade secrets, commercial information, and confidential research/development
  • Information that will endanger a person’s physical safety or result in damage to a person’s property
  • Information whose release may result in identity theft
  • Defamatory or scandalous information
  • Identification documents described under 18 U.S.C § 1028(d)

Records that are considered public may be accessible from some third-party websites. These websites often make searching simpler, as they are not limited by geographic location, and search engines on these sites may help when starting a search for specific or multiple records. To begin using such a search engine on a third-party or government website, interested parties usually must provide:

  • The name of the person involved in the record, unless said person is a juvenile
  • The location or assumed location of the record or person involved. This includes information such as the city, county, or state that person resides in or was accused in.

Third-party sites are independent from government sources, and are not sponsored by these government agencies. Because of this, record availability on third-party sites may vary.
