Once you file and receive a Bankruptcy Order, the process begins and all of your assets fall under the jurisdiction of the Official Receiver. They will order you to stop using all of your bank cards and check books, unless you use one of them for all of your living expenses. For a period of time your bank account could be frozen, which means that you will need to open up another bank account for your income and expenses. No matter whether you apply for a bank account before or after your Order is issued, all your accounts will still be frozen. Once the bankruptcy process begins, you should be able to use your alternate account.
