    applying for BR and forms... 16th Apr 18 at 10:12 AM
    I see the process of going BR is now online, an applicant is on UC so wants to apply for help with the fees but the forms are only for posting in?

    hows that work?

    Dont worry, be happy

    Sure someone else will be along but I feel sure I saw on another thread that there is no help with fees any more, I think you can pay in instalments though.
    If you do a search it may come up.

    i will second what luvchocolate said, you can no longer get help but you can pay in installments or there are charitys and trust funds that might be able to help if you qualify, i am an ex postie and i got help through a trust fund, if you are employed it could be worth checking if they have anything like this

    As said, there is no remission on the fee for bankruptcy anymore, but you can pay in installments if you wish.
