Exeter Combined Court Centre Bankruptcy Information

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

Expert guidance is very important once your debts are actually so unmanageable that drastic action is required. Occasionally the situation isn't as bad as you think, and an informal arrangement, like a Debt Management Plan, may well be more suitable.

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

For those living within Exeter 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.
