Gloucestershire Family and Civil Courts Bankruptcy Information

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

Professional assistance is essential whenever your debts are actually so unmanageable that radical action is required. From time to time the situation is not as bad as you imagine, and an informal arrangement, such as a Debt Management Plan, may well be more practical.

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

For those living within Gloucestershire 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.
