Preston Combined Court Centre Bankruptcy Information

 
 
Going to Court will be the final step of the bankruptcy process. Prior to phoning the Court and arranging a time and date to apply for a Bankruptcy Order you first need to think about the options.

Personal bankruptcy will clear all of your current unsecured debts, but in doing so it will stay on your Credit File for 6 years, which will have an effect on your future borrowing during that timeframe. An alternative form of insolvency is an IVA, which might be best suited for people who have equity to protect, or a job that is excluded from bankruptcy.

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

For those living within Preston 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.
