    DRO Application. How long once submitted? 14th Jul 17 at 4:20 PM
    My intermediary sent over my DRO to the Insolvency Service yesterday. I have read that it can be processed and approved within 24-48 hours.
    Is this still the case?
    I am checking the Insolvency Service website as I assume it will be listed there first.

    I think due to the volumes of new applications at present, the timescales have been extended somewhat.

    It will appear on the insolvency register first yes.

    It's improving a bit now. Two or three working days.

    I was informed that National Debt Line now has a 9 week waiting list from application to speak to an intermediary. Fortunately, I went with the CAB, who were absolutely fantastic and fast.

    When I applied last January the DRO was submitted at 2 in the afternoon and I heard that it had been accepted at 9.30 the following morning

    The old system used to be quick like that.

    The new system (DRO2) seems to have inbuilt delay and I doubt it'll ever be that fast.

    Well, I applied for mine on a Thursday and the intermediary emailed me on the following Monday to tell me it had been accepted.
    Two days later I received the official DRO from the insolvency Office!
    All in all very quick indeed which surprised me!
