If you’re accepted for a debt relief order (DRO) you’ll start a 12 month moratorium period. At the end of the moratorium period all the debts included in your DRO will be written off.
During these 12 months, you still have to meet the criteria for a debt relief order. If your situation changes, there’s a risk your DRO could be cancelled, and you’ll have to look into alternative ways to deal with your debts. This could happen if there’s a significant change in your situation, such as an increase in income. Once your DRO is approved, you must tell the official receiver about any changes in your circumstances.
