    How many times.....? 4th Jan 18 at 9:54 PM
    Not sure I posted this in the right place the first time, so trying again.

    I cannot believe I am even having to ask this question but could somebody tell me how many times you can go bankrupt?

    Yes, I have done it twice before, and NO I am not proud.

    Mid 90s - Young and didn't know better.
    2008 - Should have known better.
    2018 - No choice!!

    After 2 years from hell i now find myself in a position i never thought i would be in again and can see NO way out. It's a long and complex story which has led to me having to resign from a job of over 30 years for health reasons.

    Please don't judge, i feel distraught and beside myself as it is. I never ever understood why somebody would take their own life because of money but now I can totally see why.

    you may find if accepted then you will end up with a BRU/BRO extending the terms of bankruptcy beyond the typical 12 months

    Also please dont panic, there is always a solution to any problem

    Thank you both.

    I was wondering if it might be a case of a BRU/BRO being issued, which I would fully accept and understand.

    I keep hoping I will wake up and this has all been one very big nightmare.
