Royal Courts of Justice - London - Bankruptcy Court Information

 
 
Attending Court will be the final step of the bankruptcy process. Prior to calling the Court and arranging a time and date to apply for a Bankruptcy Order you first need to weigh up what you can do.

Bankruptcy will clear all your unsecured debts, but in doing so it's going to stay on your Credit Report for 6 years, which will have an impact on your future borrowing during that timeframe. An alternative type of insolvency is an IVA, which often can be best suited for those who have equity to protect, or a profession which is excluded from bankruptcy.

If bankruptcy is the answer you're looking for, then the required documentation will eventually be submitted to your local County Court.

For those living within London 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.
