Cambridge County Bankruptcy Court Information

When you have mounting debts with no prospect of paying them off, filing for bankruptcy is often an efficient way to remedy the situation and provide you with an opportunity to have a fresh start.

Professional guidance is essential whenever your debts have become so unmanageable that serious action is required. Occasionally the situation is not as bad as you imagine, and an informal arrangement, like a Debt Management Plan, may well be more practical.

If bankruptcy is definitely the solution you're looking for, then the necessary documentation will eventually be submitted to your local County Court.

For those living within Cambridge 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.
