Macclesfield County Bankruptcy Court Information

Going to Court will be the final step of the bankruptcy process. Before phoning the Court and arranging a time and date to apply for a Bankruptcy Order you first need to weigh up the options.

Personal bankruptcy will clear all your unsecured debts, but in doing so it's going to remain on your Credit File for 6 years, which can hinder your future borrowing during that timeframe. An alternative method of insolvency is an IVA, which may be ideal if you have equity to protect, or an occupation that is excluded from personal bankruptcy.

If personal bankruptcy is definitely the solution you're looking for, then the necessary paperwork will eventually be filed at your local County Court.

For those living within Macclesfield 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.
