Scunthorpe County Bankruptcy Court Information

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

Personal bankruptcy will clear your personal unsecured debts, but in doing so it will remain on your Credit History for 6 years, which can cause problems for your future borrowing during that timeframe. An alternative method of insolvency is an IVA, which might be ideal should you have equity to protect, or a profession that is excluded from personal bankruptcy.

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

For those living within Scunthorpe 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.
