Lincoln County Bankruptcy Court Information

Going to Court is the final step of the bankruptcy process. Prior to phoning the Court and organising a time and date to apply for a Bankruptcy Order you first need to assess what you can do.

Expert advice is very important whenever your debts have grown to be so unmanageable that significant action is required. Sometimes the problem is not as bad as you imagine, and an informal arrangement, like a Debt Management Plan, could be more appropriate.

If personal bankruptcy is definitely the right choice for you, then the necessary paperwork will eventually be submitted to your local County Court.

For those living within Lincoln 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.
