Will my boss find out if I file for Chapter 13 bankruptcy?

Probably. In most cases, the court will order the employer to garnish the debtor’s wages and send the required amounts directly to the trustee rather than giving the debtor a regular paycheck and leaving it up to the debtor to pay the trustee. The court may also contact the employer in order to confirm the debtor’s income. However, if the debtor can show adequate cause for not involving
the employer, the court may choose not to inform the employer.
