Swansea Civil Justice Centre Bankruptcy Information

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

Professional guidance is a must once your debts have become so unmanageable that significant action is required. Sometimes the problem isn't as bad as you imagine, and an informal arrangement, like a Debt Management Plan, may be more suitable.

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

For those living within Swansea 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.
