Going to Court will be the final step of the bankruptcy process. Prior to contacting the Court and organising a time and date to apply for a Bankruptcy Order you first need to weigh up your options.
Personal bankruptcy will clear your personal unsecured debts, but in doing so it's going to stay on your Credit File for six years, which can impact your future borrowing during that timeframe. An alternative method of insolvency is an IVA, which may be suitable in case you have equity to protect, or a profession that is excluded from bankruptcy.
If bankruptcy is definitely the right choice for you, then the appropriate documentation will eventually be filed at your local County Court.
