Accrington County Court Bankruptcy Information

When you have mounting debts with no prospect of paying them off, applying for bankruptcy could be an efficient way to treat the situation and give you a chance to have a fresh start.

Expert advice is very important as soon as your debts have become so unmanageable that drastic action is required. In some cases the problem isn't as bad as you imagine, and an informal arrangement, such as a Debt Management Plan, could be more suitable.

If personal bankruptcy is the right choice for you, then the appropriate documentation will eventually be filed at your local County Court.

For those living within Accrington we have included the court details below. You only need to contact the court if you already have everything prepared, including your Statement of Affairs and Debtor's Petition, and you are ready to finalise the Bankruptcy Order.

To arrange a consultation you can complete this online form, and an experienced Advisor will be in touch to assess your situation and advise you accordingly.
