Lincoln County Bankruptcy Court Information

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

Bankruptcy will clear all of your current unsecured debts, but in doing so it's going to remain on your Credit File for six years, which will affect your future borrowing during that timeframe. An alternative form of insolvency is an IVA, which may be suitable for people who have equity to protect, or a profession which is excluded from personal bankruptcy.

If personal bankruptcy certainly is 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.
