Welshpool and Newtown 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 remedy the situation and give you the chance to have a fresh start.

Personal bankruptcy will clear all your unsecured debts, but in doing so it is going to stay on your Credit History for six years, which will cause problems for your future borrowing during that timeframe. Another form of insolvency is an IVA, which may be best suited for people who have equity to protect, or a career that is excluded from personal bankruptcy.

If bankruptcy is the answer you're looking for, then the necessary 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.
