Newbury County Bankruptcy Court Information

Going to Court will be the final step of the bankruptcy process. Before calling the Court and arranging a time and date to apply for a Bankruptcy Order you first need to consider what you can do.

Expert advice is vital when your debts have grown to be so unmanageable that serious action is required. Sometimes the situation is not as bad as you believe, and an informal arrangement, like a Debt Management Plan, could be more practical.

If personal bankruptcy is definitely the right choice for you, then the necessary documentation will eventually be submitted to your local County Court.

For those living within Newbury 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.
