I am currently in a outstanding debt of roughly around 11000 pounds. I am unemployed and receiving benefits and in no situation to pay this money back. I am bound to around 20 creditors.

Is it possible for me to go bankrupt under these surcumstances as this is the only option. If so could you please inform me on how much it will cost me being on benefits and how to go about it. Thanks for your time.

Answer: The fees for filing for bankruptcy are £600, (£612 in London) due at the time of filing.  If you earn less than 14K PA or are receiving benefits, the fees can be waived by £150, by filing form ex160; so £450 is due at the time of filing (£472 in London).

If you are struggling with saving for the fees for bankruptcy, you can inquire with your local water, gas or electric provider as in some instances they have grant funds available to assist with various expenses.


To begin the process you may want to obtain and review the bankrutpcy forms, and/or also speak to someone about getting assistance in completing the forms.


I hope this has answered your question.
