Crewe County Bankruptcy Court Information

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

Professional guidance is a must as soon as your debts have become so unmanageable that drastic action is required. From time to time the situation isn't as bad as you believe, and an informal arrangement, like a Debt Management Plan, may well be more suitable.

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 Crewe 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.
