Ipswich County Bankruptcy Court Information

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

Qualified, professional assistance is a must as soon as your debts are getting to be so unmanageable that radical action is required. Occasionally the situation isn't as bad as you believe, and an informal arrangement, like a Debt Management Plan, may well be more suitable.

If bankruptcy certainly is the answer you're looking for, then the necessary paperwork will eventually be filed at your local County Court.

For those living within Ipswich 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.
