Darlington County Bankruptcy Court Information

Going to Court will be the final step of the bankruptcy process. Prior to speaking to the Court and organising a time and date to apply for a Bankruptcy Order you first need to think about what you can do.

Professional guidance is vital as soon as your debts have grown to be so unmanageable that significant action is required. Sometimes the problem isn't as bad as you believe, and an informal arrangement, like a Debt Management Plan, may well be more practical.

If personal bankruptcy certainly is the right choice for you, then the necessary paperwork will eventually be filed at your local County Court.

For those living within Darlington 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.
