Make yourself bankrupt

Which court you should use for bankruptcy


Bankruptcy petitions are presented in the Northern Ireland High Court, Royal Courts of Justice, Chichester Street, Belfast.

The High Court will need the completed forms, two copies of each along with a receipt of your deposit paid to the Insolvency Service before it can accept your petition for bankruptcy.

Once you have completed both forms, signed and dated the bottom of every page and have your fees ready, you can go to the High Court and ask for your petition to be dealt with. To find out about fees, see the costs involved in making yourself bankrupt.
