You are insolvent if you are unable to pay your debts in full as they fall due and there is no likelihood of doing so within 3 years.

One of your options would be to seek a Debt Relief Notice (DRN), you are only eligible to seek a DRN if you meet the general conditions set out below:

  1. You have a net monthly disposable income of €60 or less after reasonable living expenses (which will be calculated by the AI on a case by case basis using a standard template);
