So you’ve decided that you want to file for bankruptcy and you’re not really sure where to start. One of the first things, in addition to selecting your attorney, is to get started on mandatory Credit Counseling. Here is a quick walk through of what you are required to do:
- CREDIT COUNSELING:
- Before you can file for bankruptcy, you must receive US Trustee approved credit counseling. This can be completed online. For a full list of approved agencies got to http://www.usdoj.gov/ust/
- Your credit-counseling agency will provide a certificate of completion. They should also either email or fax that certificate to the law office.
- After your case is filed and within 45 days, you must complete a financial management instructional course. This certificate will also be sent to you and to the law office.
- One recommended agency is http://www.pioneercredit.com
