Dewsbury County Bankruptcy Court Information

When you have mounting debts with no prospect of paying them off, applying for bankruptcy can be an efficient way to remedy the problem and give you a chance to have a fresh start.

Bankruptcy will clear your personal unsecured debts, but in doing so it is going to stay on your Credit File for six years, which will hinder your future borrowing during that timeframe. Another type of insolvency is an IVA, which often can be best suited for people who have equity to protect, or a job which is excluded from bankruptcy.

If bankruptcy is the solution you're looking for, then the required documentation will eventually be submitted to your local County Court.

For those living within Dewsbury 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.
