Advice / Information


Stafford Combined Court Centre Bankruptcy Information

Attending Court will be the final step of the bankruptcy process. Prior to calling the Court and arranging a time and date to apply for a Bankruptcy Order you first need to assess what you can do.

Personal bankruptcy will clear your personal unsecured debts, but in doing so it will stay on your Credit File for six years, which will have an impact on your future borrowing during that timeframe. An alternative form of insolvency is an IVA, which may be ideal for those who have equity to protect, or a job which is excluded from personal bankruptcy.

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

For those living within Stafford 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.
