Filing bankruptcy out of the country
January 24th, 2008 by Questions
I moved to New Zealand a few years back and have since incurred huge credit card debts while waiting for my working visa. I`m currently not working and finding it impossible to make any payments over and above my living expenses. How do I go about filing bankruptcy from Australia? I am currently over $40,000 in debt. I presently don`t see any other option.

Normally it isn’t possible without returning to Canada unless you have resided in Canada in the last year. However, you can contact a trustee in the city you last resided and see if they will be willing to request special permission from the Superintendent of Bankruptcy.
