Salford County Bankruptcy Court Information

Attending Court is the final step of the bankruptcy process. Before speaking to the Court and organising a time and date to apply for a Bankruptcy Order you first need to weigh up your options.

Personal bankruptcy will clear all your unsecured debts, but in doing so it will stay on your Credit History for 6 years, which can cause problems for your future borrowing during that timeframe. Another method of insolvency is an IVA, which often can be best suited should you have equity to protect, or a career that is excluded from bankruptcy.

If bankruptcy is definitely the right choice for you, then the appropriate documentation will eventually be filed at your local County Court.

For those living within Salford 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.
