Blackwood Civil and Family Court Bankruptcy Information

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

Expert assistance is vital once your debts are actually so unmanageable that radical action is required. Sometimes the situation isn't as bad as you believe, and an informal arrangement, such as a Debt Management Plan, could be more suitable.

If personal 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 Blackwood 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.
