Debt Relief Order

How many hours are you allowed to work/how much can you earn and keep a debt relief order?


I owe about £5k and lost my job a few months ago. My only income is JSA. It does not seem likely that I will find a full time job any time soon, so I'm considering applying for a debt relief order. If I was to get a full time job i realise the DRO would be cancelled, but was wondering how many hours could i work if something came up, and keep the DRO?

Debt Relief Orders

If you owe less that £15,000, have £50 or less to contribute towards your debts and have assets and any savings which are worth less than £300, then a Debt Relief Order may be a faster and cheaper alterative to Bankruptcy if you can’t afford to pay your debts.

Debt Relief Orders...will it affect my fiance?


I have been advised by a debt management company to consider a DRO. I have researched, and I do meet the criteria. However with regards to the £50 or less disposable income per month, I'm not entirely sure if I include my partners income. I had the debt before I met him, so therefore my debt.

Can I still go ahead with a DRO if I move in with my boyfriend?


In my current circumstances I know I am eligible to apply for a debt relief order, as I have had reliable advice that this is the case. However, I have had certain qualms about whether this is the right way to go, and therefore haven't set it in motion yet. What I really want to do right now is move in with my boyfriend, maybe even get married, but without saddling him with my debts.

My Debt Relief Order has ended a week ago and is now being chased by one listed on DRO.


Not sure what I am meant to do. As I persumed all creditors listed on order I would be free from debt.

How will a debt relief order effect my future?


I am unemployed and owe £8000 from a career development loan, I have missed 3 monthly payments. I have been advised that I qualify for a debt relief order and wondered if it is worth it.
