Wigan County Bankruptcy Court Information

 
 
Going to Court is the final step of the bankruptcy process. Before contacting the Court and organising a time and date to apply for a Bankruptcy Order you first need to assess what you can do.

Professional advice is essential as soon as your debts have become so unmanageable that drastic action is required. Occasionally the situation is not as bad as you think, and an informal arrangement, like a Debt Management Plan, may be more practical.

If personal bankruptcy is definitely the right choice for you, then the necessary paperwork will eventually be submitted to your local County Court.

For those living within Wigan 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.
