i am very relieved indeed, but i hasnt really sunk in yet i think.
The process here is pretty straight forward and from what ive read on the forums things happen a bit more quicky which may be down to a smaller population? this is Belfast specific so im not sure about other areas of NI although the procedure will obviously be the same.
First of all go see the CAB, get advice and if you decide to go ahead with it , they refere you to a company called Grant Thornton who i believe are accountants. They go through the forms and ensure everything is in order. You then go to a solicitor (normally cleaver fulton & rankin, on bedford st) for your affidavit, takes 5 minutes and costs a fiver. then its off to the insolvency service on ormeau avenue (literally accross the street) to lodge your documents pay your fees 310 and get a reciept for the court
on Chichester st (the masters crt is second floor in the old buliding on the right after you go through the main reception building) pay your 62 quid and you will get an appointment to see the Master usually within 7 days ( i got mine in 3) although when i was there others came in just expecting to get a date but got seen within half an hour!! (im sure they where freaked out).
Literally 2 minutes with the master (lovely lady) asked did i file a petition?
did i seek advice?, am i happy that this is the most appropriate option? and that was it!
No where near as bad as id thought and everyone involved so far has
been very very helpful and nice.
