Southampton Combined Court Centre Bankruptcy Information

Going to Court is the final step of the bankruptcy process. Before speaking to the Court and arranging a time and date to apply for a Bankruptcy Order you first need to consider your options.

You should seek expert guidance prior to proceeding to ensure that this is the ideal choice for you, as bankruptcy could adversely affect your assets and occupation.

If personal bankruptcy is the answer you're looking for, then the required paperwork will eventually be submitted to your local County Court.

For those living within Southampton 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.
