Sheffield Combined Court Centre Bankruptcy Information

When you have mounting debts with no prospect of paying them off, declaring bankruptcy could be an effective way to treat the situation and provide you with a chance to have a fresh start.

Personal bankruptcy will clear all of your unsecured debts, but in doing so it is going to stay on your Credit History for 6 years, which will hinder your future borrowing during that timeframe. An alternative type of insolvency is an IVA, which might be ideal for people who have equity to protect, or a career that is excluded from personal bankruptcy.

If bankruptcy is definitely the right choice for you, then the required documentation will eventually be submitted to your local County Court.

For those living within Sheffield 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.
