Peterborough Combined Court Centre Bankruptcy Information

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

Qualified, professional advice is vital when your debts have grown to be so unmanageable that drastic action is required. In some cases the problem is not as bad as you imagine, and an informal arrangement, like a Debt Management Plan, could be more suitable.

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

For those living within Peterborough 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.
