My wife will be going bankrupt shortly too and the other day she called up the courts to book an appointment. To my surprise she could get in within 24 hours, and actually she had to decline the date as she hasn't filled in her Statement of Affairs yet. The lady at the court said that it was pretty quiet at the moment - this surprised me as I expected that many people would hold off going bankrupt until after the holidays. My wife, as ever, figured it out - nobody has the money to go bankrupt at the moment.
Unbelievable isn't it - right now people are too broke to go bankrupt. I guess the rush will be February.
