Bankruptcy & personal insolvency

If you have been served with a bankruptcy notice or a creditor’s petition, you should obtain legal advice as soon as possible.

Bankruptcy occurs when a person is unable to pay their debt and can be entered into voluntarily by filing a debtor’s petition, or imposed by the Federal Court after hearing a creditor’s petition, which is a legal process commenced by a creditor.

How we can help you

Our lawyers will work closely with you, your accountants, and your financial advisors to find the best solution for you, which can include:

  • Negotiating to repay debts without the need to enter bankruptcy.
  • Issuing bankruptcy notices for unpaid debts.
  • Commencing bankruptcy proceedings.
  • Giving advice on bankruptcy notices received by an individual.
  • Acting for individuals in bankruptcy proceedings brought against them.
  • Assisting individuals in filing for bankruptcy and advising on legal issues.

If you are considering entering bankruptcy or a creditor intends to bankrupt you, you need to understand the implications this will have on your future. Bankruptcy can be a complicated and stressful process with a number of strict deadlines.

Our team can also advise you if you need to file for bankruptcy. The documentation can be difficult to navigate and we can provide clear advice as to what you need to declare. Our lawyers can also advise you if you are in communication with your trustee or they are requesting further information. A trustee has the power to extend your bankruptcy if you fail to declare the correct information.

Our team of experienced bankruptcy lawyers can advise you on the many options available and help find the best outcome for you.
