was going to namechange but can't be bothered.

got a letter today from a debt collector. it has a sentance in it saying

" It is now our intention to issue a statutory demand under the insolvency act 1986 (bankruptcy) "

now i know i am being thick but does this mean that they are going to make me bankrupt? and if so what happens now?

I actually considered filling for bankruptcy myself not long agho anyway so its nto as bad as it could be but will it mean i still have to pay the £400 or so in legal fee's?

can someone tell me how it works.

I don't think they are going to make you bankrupt, but it's part of the process (?) that could eventually lead to brankruptcy.

Does that help?

what is the process? im actually quite shamefully thick about stuff like this.

Aah, that makes two of us then.

I don't know, is the honest answer.

DH (who I asked) has gone to bed. Sorry. I'll ask him more tomorrow for you though.

Statutory Demand - this may be of help.
