Plymouth Combined Court Bankruptcy Information

Going to Court is the final step of the bankruptcy process. Prior to calling the Court and organising a time and date to apply for a Bankruptcy Order you first need to consider what you can do.

Qualified, professional assistance is a must when your debts have become so unmanageable that radical action is required. From time to time the situation is not as bad as you imagine, and an informal arrangement, such as a Debt Management Plan, may well be more suitable.

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

For those living within Plymouth 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.
