Welshpool and Newtown County Bankruptcy Court Information

Going to Court is the final step of the bankruptcy process. Prior to contacting the Court and arranging a time and date to apply for a Bankruptcy Order you first need to assess your plan of action.

Personal bankruptcy will clear all of your unsecured debts, but in doing so it will remain on your Credit File for 6 years, which can impact your future borrowing during that timeframe. An alternative type of insolvency is an IVA, which often can be best suited for people who have equity to protect, or a profession which is excluded from bankruptcy.

If personal bankruptcy certainly is the solution you're looking for, then the required paperwork will eventually be filed at your local County Court.

For those living within Welshpool and Newtown 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.
