Bridgend Law Courts Bankruptcy Information

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

Qualified, professional guidance is essential whenever your debts are actually so unmanageable that drastic action is required. Occasionally the situation isn't as bad as you imagine, and an informal arrangement, such as a Debt Management Plan, could be more appropriate.

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

For those living within Bridgend 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.
