Full Answer

According to University of Wisconsin Law Library, federal court dockets, including bankruptcy documents, can be viewed using a service called Free Court Dockets. The Free Court Dockets website offers the ability to view dockets, but in order to view filing information, a PACER account is necessary. PACER is a national index for U.S. district, bankruptcy, and appellate courts. In order to search for court records via the PACER system, a paid account is required. Through the Justia website, however, UW Law Library says that users can obtain a bankruptcy case number for free and use that number on the Free Court Dockets website to view certain details contained on a bankruptcy document.

The Justia website offers the ability to search for lawyers by legal issue and it also has a bankruptcy Q&A section. Users can type in specific questions that are then answered by an attorney registered on the site who specializes in bankruptcy laws within a particular state.
