Bankruptcy Counseling

Bankruptcy Counseling

The decision to file bankruptcy is not an easy one to make. Unforeseen circumstances in life may be the reason behind your decision. If you are considering filing for Bankruptcy there are a few things you should know. The Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005, a major reform of the bankruptcy system, was passed by Congress and signed into law by President Bush in April 2005. The bankruptcy law was reformed in a number of ways, including tighter eligibility requirements. The new requirements mandated that debtors meet with a credit counselor employed by an approved Credit Counseling agency in the six months prior to filing for bankruptcy. Additionally, if a debtor's petition for bankruptcy is approved they must complete a debtor education money management course before debts are discharged.
