The Bankruptcy Reform Act of 2005 resulted in significant changes in bankruptcy law. One of the new requirements is that people seeking to file for a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy must first take a credit counseling course provided by an approved agency before and after filing. Most of my clients have found the courses very useful and the cost is negligible.
Since it is not possible to file for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy without taking these courses, if you are experiencing financial distress, I encourage you to take the pre-filing course right away. The cost of the course is usually around $30.00 and may help you avoid filing bankruptcy entirely. The course may be completed online and once completed, I can import your financial information into my own software which will give me the complete picture of your finances that I will need to advise you as to whether or not you should proceed to bankruptcy or try an alternative approach to getting your finances under control.
