Birkenhead County Court Bankruptcy Information

Going to Court will be the final step of the bankruptcy process. Before calling the Court and arranging a time and date to apply for a Bankruptcy Order you first need to assess the options.

Qualified, professional assistance is vital as soon as your debts are actually so unmanageable that serious action is required. From time to time the situation isn't as bad as you think, and an informal arrangement, such as a Debt Management Plan, may be more suitable.

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

For those living within Birkenhead 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.
