The local courts of first instance (protodikeía) are responsible for considering cases and issuing decisions on bankruptcy requests.

The local district civil courts (eirinodikeía) are responsible for declaring bankruptcy in small-scale bankruptcies.

The local courts of first instance are responsible for procedures in the context of pre-bankruptcy resolution.
