Cheltenham County Bankruptcy Court 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 give you an opportunity to have a fresh start.

You must seek professional assistance before proceeding to guarantee that this is actually the right option to suit your needs, as bankruptcy could possibly, adversely affect your assets and occupation.

If personal bankruptcy is the right choice for you, then the required documentation will eventually be submitted to your local County Court.

For those living within Cheltenham 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.
