Question

Jon,

I was fined by the courts for fly tipping and cannot afford to pay the fine. I want to go bankrupt and can I include these fines in my bankruptcy?

Martin

Answer

Martin,

A couple of questions, such as how much are the fines in total? How much other debt do you have?

You may be able to go bankrupt, but a DRO or Debt Relief Order, may also be an option.

Certain fines cannot be included in a bankruptcy, so your fines may not be allowed to be included and discharged.

Regards,

Jon
