I Had to Flee the UK. Will I Be Arrested For Debts When I Fly Back In? – Ann

“Dear Steve,

I had to flee the uk for me and my kids safety , i had lots of debts and credit cards . now im in another country , im scared , my mother is severly ill and i need to try and get back to the UK , i havent paid any of my debt from last august . i had a forwarding address and my friend has called and said 2 debt letters have arrived for me . . thanks im so worried

Can my friend be blacklisted? and will i be arrested when i fly back in2 the uk . im so worried any help is greatly appreciated


Dear Ann,

No worries. When you return you’ll stand in the long line at border control for UK passport holders, You’ll flash your passport and in you go. The only thing those folks are concerned about is that you’ve got a valid passport.

Your friend will not be backlisted.

I would suggest that you assume responsibility for these debts and petition for bankruptcy. You can even do this from outside the UK. Click here for help.


You are not alone. I'm here to help. There is no need to suffer in silence. We can get through this. Tomorrow can be better than today. Don't give up.

Do you have a question you'd like to ask me for free? Go ahead and click here.
