Hello, I don' t live in the UK at the moment but I have debts since the time I have been living there. I moved to Dubai with my husband and my 2yrs old daughter. Unfortunatelly my husband could' t find a job here so I am the only one working. We experience great financial difficulties and I am struggling to pay off my uk credit card and the housing benefits overpayment . The amount of my debts is around £9000. Am I eligible to declare bankruptcy?

Hi and welcome.

How long have you been living in Dubai?

The friend in my adversity I shall always cherish most. I can better trust those who helped to relieve the gloom of my dark hours than those who are so ready to enjoy with me the sunshine of my prosperity. – Ulysses S. Grant

If you've been abroad less than 3 years, then you can still declare BR here.

However, have you taken advice? Please, I suggest you speak to an expert to chat through all your options.

Do remember that you will still be under the same rules and restrictions as you would be if you are living in the UK. If it was me i would also want to check out what laws Dubai has in this regard as they are not exactly known for their leniency in certain areas of law.
