    What is a suitable situation to take the Debt Relief Order? Are there any limitations on the debts?

    You may be able to get a DRO if all of the following things apply to you:
    • you're unable to pay your debts
    • your debts are worth up to £20,000
    • youíve got £50 or less left over each month after youíve paid your usual household expenses
    • you donít own your home
    • other savings or things of value you own, called assets, are worth less than £1,000 (some assets are ignored when working out the value)
    • you donít own a car worth £1000 or more, unless itís one thatís been specially adapted because you have a disability
    • it's been at least 6 years since your previous DRO was made and you arenít going through another formal insolvency procedure, such as bankruptcy or an individual voluntary arrangement (IVA)
    • you've lived, had a property, or worked in England or Wales in the last three years.

        It depends totally on your circumstances and we're unable to advise as we're not regulated debt advisors. Your best bet is to get an appointment with Citizens Advice and go in for a face to face meeting with an advisor, take all your paperwork so they can advise what option suits your circumstances xx

          Thank you for your advice but one of my friends suggested to me that it's better to apply for IVA than DRO. As my debts are around £30,000 which I would like to repay without facing any difficulties to my financial needs.

              The limit for a debt relief order is £20k.

              Debts that canít go in a DRO are:
              • magistrates court fines and confiscation orders - these are fines relating to criminal activity
              • child support and maintenance
              • student loans
              • social fund loans
              • compensation for death and injury.

              These debts don't count towards the limit.

                    The main pros of debt relief order are creditors can't take any action without your permission and the main cons are you always have to remember about to pay DRO. And there are other criteria too about your monthly income.¬* Once your DRO has done then you no need to go for a court.¬*
                    The DRO or Debt Relief Order is one of the safest ways that help you to deal with your debts when you owe less amount of money.
