Manchester County Court Bankruptcy Information

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

Personal bankruptcy will clear all your unsecured debts, but in doing so it will stay on your Credit File for 6 years, which can have an impact on your future borrowing during that timeframe. An alternative form of insolvency is an IVA, which might be suitable for those who have equity to protect, or a career which is excluded from personal bankruptcy.

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

For those living within Manchester 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.
