All you can do is be honest, disclose and explain your change of circumstances. maybe speak to the SRA to determine suitability etc. Good luck.

Hi @miapennales,

With this kind of situation, honesty really is the best policy! I would disclose everything and see what they have to say about it. I would try not to worry too much and just explain your circumstances 🙂

I had a similar issue. I was up front and honest with the SRA. Be prepared for it to take a long time and to be asked a lot of questions. They are going to want evidence you are on top of your debts and finances now so maintain a clean record.

Don’t try to hide anything - chances are they’ll find it and that will work against you.

My case worker was very approachable while remaining professional and I was admitted after showing that I had learned from my earlier mistakes and was on top of my current finances.
