Ipswich County Bankruptcy Court Information

Attending Court will be the final step of the bankruptcy process. Before phoning the Court and organising a time and date to apply for a Bankruptcy Order you first need to consider what you can do.

Bankruptcy will clear all of your unsecured debts, but in doing so it is going to remain on your Credit Report for six years, which will cause problems for your future borrowing during that timeframe. Another type of insolvency is an IVA, which often can be suitable in case you have equity to protect, or a job that is excluded from bankruptcy.

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