Southend County Bankruptcy Court Information

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

Personal bankruptcy will clear your personal unsecured debts, but in doing so it's going to remain on your Credit Report for six years, which can have an impact on your future borrowing during that timeframe. An alternative method of insolvency is an IVA, which may be best suited should you have equity to protect, or an occupation that is excluded from bankruptcy.

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

For those living within Southend 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.
