Bristol County Court Bankruptcy Information

 
 
Going to Court will be the final step of the bankruptcy process. Before speaking to the Court and arranging a time and date to apply for a Bankruptcy Order you first need to think about your options.

Bankruptcy will clear your personal unsecured debts, but in doing so it is going to remain on your Credit File for six years, which will have an impact on your future borrowing during that timeframe. An alternative form of insolvency is an IVA, which might be ideal if you have equity to protect, or an occupation that is excluded from bankruptcy.

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

For those living within Bristol 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.
