Leicester County Bankruptcy Court Information

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

Bankruptcy will clear all of your unsecured debts, but in doing so it is going to remain on your Credit History for six years, which can affect your future borrowing during that timeframe. Another form of insolvency is an IVA, which could be best suited if you have equity to protect, or a job which is excluded from personal bankruptcy.

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

For those living within Leicester 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.
