Blackpool County Court Bankruptcy Information

When you have mounting debts with no prospect of paying them off, declaring bankruptcy can be an effective way to remedy the situation and provide you with a chance to have a fresh start.

Qualified, professional advice is vital when your debts are getting to be so unmanageable that drastic action is required. Sometimes the situation is not as bad as you imagine, and an informal arrangement, such as a Debt Management Plan, could be more practical.

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

For those living within Blackpool 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.
