Crewe County Bankruptcy Court Information

Going to Court is the final step of the bankruptcy process. Prior to calling the Court and organising a time and date to apply for a Bankruptcy Order you first need to consider what you can do.

Bankruptcy will clear all of your unsecured debts, but in doing so it is going to stay on your Credit Report for six years, which can affect your future borrowing during that timeframe. Another type of insolvency is an IVA, which could be ideal for people who have equity to protect, or a career that is excluded from personal bankruptcy.

If bankruptcy is the right choice for you, then the appropriate 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.
