More about Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy gives people the chance to write off their debts by using their assets - such as possessions, property and income - to make contributions in order to settle any debts. In order to apply for bankruptcy, you - or your creditors, if they issue a petition against you - need to go through the courts and pay bankruptcy fees.   

If the petition has been accepted, a bankruptcy order will be issued and an insolvency practitioner - or the official receiver - will be appointed as your trustee. This individual will manage the process while taking over the control of your assets. 

There are a number of possible reasons why a person may want to file for bankruptcy over other debt management solutions, however, doing so has a huge impact on the lives of those it affects which is why it is important to seek professional advice before taking any action.
