Looking for Bankruptcy Records - Florida

Are you looking for Bankruptcy records? Do you know bankruptcy records are public records and still can’t seem to find them?

You’re in luck, because public records in all 50 states of America are easier to find than you think!

This is because of the famous “Sunshine” law that mandates all government proceedings conducted in the states be open to the public.

The people of America have made it clear that they believe they have a right to know what their government is doing, and the government has responded accordingly.

The Sunshine law means that all government meetings are open to the public, and can be recorded by any citizen in a non-disruptive manner. It also means that records generated by the government are open for public inspection, with very few exceptions (records involving minors and sexual assault victims are generally sealed, and birth certificates are only available to the person whose name is on the certificate or to that person’s parents until 100 years after the birth).

The Sunshine law applies to local, county, and state governments. As such, it’s easy to look up public records on nearly anyone who has lived in Florida within the past two decades.

Some Florida counties even have public records going back into the mid to late 1800′s! While Pinellas public records and Miami public records are among the most searched record sources in the state (because so many people live in these counties), most counties in Florida have requests for public records at least daily.

You can save a LOT of time looking for Florida public records, including the popular Pinellas public records and Miami public records, by subscribing to a record finding service. As the demand for public records in Florida grows, so do subscriptions to record finding services. Let’s face it, everyone wants to know something about someone. People who are dating someone new for the first time are some of the biggest consumers of these records, as they want to know who they’re letting into their lives. But lots of other people want public records for many different reasons.
