Oldham County Bankruptcy Court Information

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

It's essential to seek expert advice before proceeding to ensure that this is the ideal decision for you, as personal bankruptcy may adversely affect your assets and occupation.

If personal bankruptcy certainly is the solution you're looking for, then the appropriate documentation 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.
