What is in This Collection?[edit | edit source]
This collection contains records from the Insolvency Court, Adelaide, South Australia. Bankruptcy became a federal function with the passage in 1928 of the Bankruptcy Act (Commonwealth). From the South Australia Attorney-General's Department: "Insolvency, or bankruptcy, was handled through the Insolvency Court. Procedure varied considerably over time and from case to case. The Supreme Court of South Australia was established as a Court of Insolvency in 1841. "The Insolvency Court heard and adjudicated matters when an individual became financially insolvent or bankrupt and still owed money to their creditors.
