Bedford County Court Bankruptcy Information

 
 
When you have mounting debts with no prospect of paying them off, filing for bankruptcy could be an effective way to treat the problem and provide you with an opportunity to have a fresh start.

Personal bankruptcy will clear all of your unsecured debts, but in doing so it's going to remain on your Credit File for six years, which can have an effect on your future borrowing during that timeframe. Another type of insolvency is an IVA, which may be ideal if you have equity to protect, or a career which is excluded from personal bankruptcy.

If bankruptcy certainly is the solution you're looking for, then the appropriate paperwork will eventually be submitted to your local County Court.

For those living within Bedford 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.
