Pre-Discharge Bankruptcy Education

Pre-Discharge Bankruptcy Education

These programs are designed to provide comprehensive curriculum covering a variety of financial budgeting topics, assuring you have the tools necessary to build a strong financial foundation.

As of October 17, 2005, all individuals filing for bankruptcy under Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 are required to participate in a pre-discharge bankruptcy education session.

Benefits of the pre-discharge counseling session:

    You will walk away with a better understanding of:
  • How bankruptcy will affect your life
  • How to use a budget
  • How credit works
  • How to rebuild credit

Consumers who receive pre-discharge education with our Agency (an NFCC member) can expect:

  • Format: Counseling can be face-to-face or over the phone.
  • Certificate: Consumers will receive a certificate indicating that they completed the education session. Please note that the Pre-Discharge Debtor Education Certificate has no expiration date.
  • Cost: There is a $50.00 fee per filer; fees may be waived for those who meet defined income guidelines and provide us with documented proof of income. Payments are to be made by debit card, credit card, or money order. Online counseling also accepts MASTERCARD & VISA credit cards.
