Shrewsbury County Bankruptcy Court Information

Attending Court will be 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 think about the options.

Expert guidance is very important as soon as your debts have become so unmanageable that drastic action is required. In some cases the situation is not as bad as you believe, and an informal arrangement, like a Debt Management Plan, may well be more appropriate.

If personal bankruptcy is the right choice for you, then the required paperwork will eventually be filed at your local County Court.

For those living within Shrewsbury 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.
