Bath County Court Bankruptcy Information

Attending Court will be the final step of the bankruptcy process. Prior to contacting the Court and arranging a time and date to apply for a Bankruptcy Order you first need to consider the options.

Expert assistance is essential as soon as your debts are becoming so unmanageable that radical action is required. In some cases the situation isn't as bad as you imagine, and an informal arrangement, such as a Debt Management Plan, could be more practical.

If bankruptcy certainly is the solution you're looking for, then the required paperwork will eventually be filed at your local County Court.

For those living within Bath 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.
