 If you know the bankruptcy case number, you can go to the bankruptcy court where your bankruptcy was filed and give the case number to the bankruptcy court clerk and ask to see the file.  You can't remove the file from the court, but can ask the court clerk to photocopy the items you need from the file. 

If you don't know the bankruptcy case number, you can go to the bankruptcy court and look for your name in the court's computer to find the case and case number.  Then, give the case number to the court clerk as mentioned above to see the file and have those documents photocopied by the court clerk.
