Oldham County Bankruptcy Court Information

 
 
When you have mounting debts with no prospect of paying them off, filing for bankruptcy could be an effective way to remedy the situation and give you a chance to have a fresh start.

Personal bankruptcy will clear all your unsecured debts, but in doing so it will remain on your Credit Report for six years, which will have an effect on your future borrowing during that timeframe. Another method of insolvency is an IVA, which may be best suited in case you have equity to protect, or a job which is excluded from bankruptcy.

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

For those living within Oldham 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.
