Stockport County Bankruptcy Court Information

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

Professional advice is essential once your debts are becoming so unmanageable that serious action is required. At times the problem isn't as bad as you imagine, and an informal arrangement, such as a Debt Management Plan, may well be more suitable.

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

For those living within Stockport 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.
