Huddersfield County Bankruptcy Court Information

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

Bankruptcy will clear all of your current unsecured debts, but in doing so it's going to stay on your Credit History for six years, which will influence your future borrowing during that timeframe. An alternative form of insolvency is an IVA, which could be best suited for those who have equity to protect, or a job that is excluded from personal bankruptcy.

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

For those living within Huddersfield 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.
