Derby Combined Court Centre Bankruptcy Information

When you have mounting debts with no prospect of paying them off, applying for bankruptcy is often an effective way to treat the problem and provide you with the chance to have a fresh start.

Personal bankruptcy will clear all of your current unsecured debts, but in doing so it will remain on your Credit History for 6 years, which can have an effect on your future borrowing during that timeframe. Another type of insolvency is an IVA, which might be best suited if you have equity to protect, or a job that is excluded from bankruptcy.

If bankruptcy is definitely the answer you're looking for, then the appropriate documentation will eventually be filed at your local County Court.

For those living within Aberdare 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.
