Bankruptcy Pre-Discharge Debtor Education
As per the Bankruptcy Abuse and Consumer Protection Act of 2005 (BAPCPA), consumers who file a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy are required to complete a bankruptcy counseling session from an agency approved by the Executive Office for United States Trustees (EOUST). Clients must complete this debtor education class AFTER they file for bankruptcy.
