Thank you for your question. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do whatever I can to answer your questions!

It would not be easy or simple to uncover a bankruptcy filed 25 years ago. That said it is possible. It typically would require a manual file search of the archives. A credit report would not indicate the bankruptcy

I think this is what you wanted to know. Please let me know if I have answered your question or whether you would like further information...but please do not shoot the messenger.

I lived in Texas when I filed. now I live in Missouri for 10 years.

The change of address may make it more difficult. Practically speaking, a person would typically need to know that you filed and where you filed in order to find a 25-year-old bankruptcy
