  • Or be French living abroad but unable to repay debts from creditors who are established in France.

The steps to make an over-indebtedness file


To obtain the file, one must go to the branch of the Banque de France of his department. It is also possible to request the file by mail or download it on the Banque de France website. The file includes a notice and all the documents to be attached.

In case of difficulty to fill the file, it is possible to be helped by the agents of the Communal Center of Social Action (CCAS) of his commune.

Once the file is completed, it must be sent by registered mail with acknowledgment of receipt to the nearest Commission. It is also possible to deposit it directly in the secretariat of the Commission . The registration of the file has the immediate consequence of registering the applicant to the FICP (Personal Credit Credits Incentive File).
But before filing the file, it must be completed and attach all necessary paperwork.
