  1. For information, I saw a link on this site for an article citing a UK Supreme Court decision in Oct 2012 relating to foreign insolvency judgements and wanted to see if there had been any changes since then. I haven't been able to find anything as yet, however located a page, dated May 2013, which listed information and implications of the 2012 decision. I'm not able to post the link as I'm a newbie, but of interest is the following summary contained within: "The judgment in Rubin makes it clear that if an English defendant takes no part in proceedings in foreign courts—be they bankruptcy
  2. Thank you, that would be very much appreciated. I would think they all sold. There was decent equity in two of the properties, so even if they sold the property in question at a lower than market price they would've covered it. The amount owing is more than that house was worth though.

I would like to do all I can to avoid the lengthy battle she had, but there is the issue that my debts far exceed those of a credit card. I'll draft a letter to them and hopefully it helps. And apologies for the length of my initial post. I only just noticed how big it is!
  7. Hi there, Please note I offer the following detail both to avoid negative comments or judgement about deliberately skipping debt, and to also give sufficient information in the hopes of getting directions on which way to proceed. I have dual Australian/UK citizenship and now reside in England after leaving Australia under a big black cloud two and a half years ago. I owned several properties in Australia, but had a severe mental breakdown following some significant personal events.
