Yeovil County Bankruptcy Court Information

When you have mounting debts with no prospect of paying them off, declaring bankruptcy can be an efficient way to remedy the problem and provide you with an opportunity to have a fresh start.

Personal bankruptcy will clear all of your unsecured debts, but in doing so it is going to remain on your Credit File for six years, which will have an effect on your future borrowing during that timeframe. An alternative method of insolvency is an IVA, which often can be ideal should you have equity to protect, or an occupation that is excluded from personal bankruptcy.

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

For those living within Yeovil 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.
