Scunthorpe County Bankruptcy Court Information

Going to Court will be the final step of the bankruptcy process. Before contacting the Court and arranging a time and date to apply for a Bankruptcy Order you first need to assess the options.

Qualified, professional assistance is a must whenever your debts are getting to be so unmanageable that serious action is required. Occasionally the problem isn't as bad as you think, and an informal arrangement, like a Debt Management Plan, may well be more suitable.

If bankruptcy is the answer you're looking for, then the required paperwork will eventually be filed at 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.
