Portsmouth Combined Court Centre Bankruptcy Information

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

Personal bankruptcy will clear all your unsecured debts, but in doing so it's going to stay on your Credit File for six years, which can hinder your future borrowing during that timeframe. Another method of insolvency is an IVA, which often can be best suited in case you have equity to protect, or a job which is excluded from bankruptcy.

If bankruptcy certainly is the answer you're looking for, then the required documentation will eventually be submitted to your local County Court.

For those living within Portsmouth 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.
