We have considerable expertise in advising individuals on bankruptcy and the implications for the debtor themselves and any none bankrupt spouse. In addition we can assist with personal guarantees and the implications of none payment. Interim and final charging orders can also form part of enforcement action by creditors and again our solicitors can advise on the implications of such actions and challenge where appropriate, keeping your best interests in mind at all times.
