Apply for a Debt Relief Order (DRO)

A Debt Relief Order is a form of insolvency for people who cannot repay their debt and have no valuable assets. To apply for a DRO, your unsecured debt must be 15,000 or less.

Should I apply for a Debt Relief Order?

If you cannot afford to repay your debts and you haven't got any valuable assets, a Debt Relief Order might be right for you. However, before you apply, you need to find out if you're eligible to enter one. Just answer the following questions:

  • Do you owe 15,000 or less?
  • If you own assets, are they worth 300 or less in total?
  • Do you have 50 or less available to spend every month after paying all other usual household expenses?

If you answered 'yes' to all of three of these questions, and you are not involved in any other insolvency proceedings (such as an IVA or bankruptcy), a Debt Relief Order may be the right debt solution for you.

How to apply for a Debt Relief Order

You can only apply for a Debt Relief Order through an 'approved Intermediary'. All About Money is an approved Intermediary, which means we can complete the DRO application form for you.

A DRO is only one form of insolvency. Our advisers will be able to tell you whether another insolvency solution, such as bankruptcy or an IVA (Individual Voluntary Arrangement) would be more appropriate.

Completing the DRO application form

You won't have to fill in the DRO application form yourself. We can help you by completing it on your behalf.

When you apply for a DRO, you can pay the 90 application fee in instalments if you need to. We are here to help you deal with your debt and we want to make sure the process is affordable for you and runs as smoothly as possible.

How you can help us to help you

We'll need to ask you about your financial situation and you'll need to make sure you give us all the necessary figures. That's because when you apply for a Debt Relief Order, we need to tell the official receiver about all of your assets and liabilities. The official receiver decides whether or not you can enter into a DRO.

You'll need to know the names of all your lenders and their addresses. We will put these details into your DRO application form.

We will do everything we can to make sure the DRO is successful, but we'll need you to help us - if the official receiver comes back to us with more questions, we'll need to be able to contact you to find out everything they need to know.

Finding a way out of debt can lift a burden from your shoulders and give you a fresh start, so simply call one of our advisers today if you want to apply for a DRO.

Even if a DRO isn't right for you, we have other debt solutions for all kinds of problem debts - call us today and we can help you find the debt solution that fits!
