Medway County Bankruptcy Court Information

Attending Court is 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 consider the options.

Bankruptcy will clear all of your current unsecured debts, but in doing so it is going to stay on your Credit History for six years, which can impact your future borrowing during that timeframe. Another type of insolvency is an IVA, which may be ideal for people who have equity to protect, or a profession that is excluded from personal bankruptcy.

If personal bankruptcy is the answer you're looking for, then the appropriate paperwork 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.
