Medway County Bankruptcy Court Information

When you have mounting debts with no prospect of paying them off, applying for bankruptcy can be an effective way to treat the problem and provide you with a chance to have a fresh start.

Expert assistance is a must as soon as your debts are actually so unmanageable that serious action is required. Sometimes the situation isn't as bad as you believe, and an informal arrangement, such as a Debt Management Plan, could be more suitable.

If personal bankruptcy is definitely the right choice for you, then the required documentation will eventually be filed at your local County Court.

For those living within Medway 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.
