Are the identities of Chapter 13 debtors public record?

Yes. Chapter 13 cases are public record, and so credit reporting agencies may publish the names of the debtors involved. However, publications such as magazines and newspapers that have a broader readership do not typically publish the names of debtors except in the case of celebrity bankruptcy.
