Will try to cut a long story short...I went into hiding from my debts in 2003 and hoped they would not catch up with me. Of course they seem to have now. I came home today to find a bailiffs warrant posted thru my door. This is the first communication I have had since the day I left. (I have been living with friends in UK and overseas so haven't registered anywhere). It seems odd to me that the first communication I get is a bailiff calling at my house (I have no idea how they got my address btw), I thought I was supposed to be served with the notice 7 days prior???
My plan is to go down the route of voluntary bankruptcy as I am not earning anything at this time and just living off the kindness of family.
I understand the implications of bankruptcy and accept them.
What should my next move be? Should I tell the bailiff that I am filing for bankruptcy? What will he do in the meantime?
Sorry if this is a little muddled but as I am sure you can imagine things are a little stressful.
I own nothing other than clothes at my current address so I understand nothing of my friends can be touched - is this correct?
Thanks for any help on this.
