Apply for Sequestration

Beat My Debt can advise you about whether Sequestration (Bankruptcy in Scotland) is the right debt solution for you however we do not provide a specific service to help you.

Once you have decided that you want to start the sequestration process, you will normally need to get a Certificate for Sequestration from an approved Money Advisor. You then have 30 days to apply for your bankruptcy at the court.

We can help advise you how to do this however we do not provide a specific service to assist with this process.
