Default Possible assistance with Bankruptcy costs / fees

For those who have taken proper advice and decided on bankruptcy as the long term option for dealing with their debts, it is often difficult to raise the necessary fees. It is our experience that any delays in raising the fees for bankruptcy can often prolong the stress and suffering for those with overwhelming debts.

For anyone in this position, there are a number of charities and organisations that may help with Bankruptcy costs and fees depending on eligibility. Examples below.Please note you will usually need the assistance of a recognised Debt and Money Advice Worker in completing applications relating to the above.

Also, please be aware that any applications to the above may take a number of weeks and are not guaranteed to be sucessful, however we know of many successful applications so it may be worth a try.

Wishing you luck, NEDCAB.

Hi,

Just to add,

The charities & organisations we have listed may also help with other bills, costs, much needed breaks, essential household items etc and just may be worth a try.

You "may" be able to get financial assistance to pay for bankruptcy or DRO (Debt Relief Order) fees by applying to a charity for a grant to pay the fee. I maintain a regularly updated list of charities who pay bankruptcy fees at my homepage which you'll need to copy and paste into your browser homepage.ntlworld.com/stuart.blackstock/funding/bankruptcy_fees.html

I hope this helps resolve the fee problem for some of you.
