Bridgend Law Courts 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 situation and provide you with the chance to have a fresh start.

You need to seek specialist advice prior to proceeding to guarantee that this is the right option for you, as personal bankruptcy may negatively affect your assets and occupation.

If personal bankruptcy is the answer you're looking for, then the necessary documentation will eventually be filed at 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.
