Bankruptcy help desk

Our Bankruptcy & Debt Desk is based within our Central London County Court service. Our office is in the ground floor of the Thomas More building where the County Court is based.

You can come in and see us and we can provide advice on the day about defending or applying for bankruptcy, other debt options such as DROs, or any other debts.

Our service is open Monday to Friday 9.30am - 4.30pm. You can also email us on debt@rcjadvice.org.uk or call on

It is helpful if you can bring any relevant paperwork with you when you come and see us. We ask you to complete a form that gives us an idea of your financial circumstances which helps us work with you to address your debts.
