Boston County Court Bankruptcy Information

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

Personal bankruptcy will clear all of your unsecured debts, but in doing so it will stay on your Credit History for 6 years, which can affect your future borrowing during that timeframe. An alternative form of insolvency is an IVA, which often can be ideal in case you have equity to protect, or an occupation that is excluded from bankruptcy.

If bankruptcy is the answer you're looking for, then the appropriate documentation will eventually be filed at your local County Court.

For those living within Boston 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.
