If you decide to pursue a Chapter 7 bankruptcy filing, a condition of your debt’s discharge will be your successful completion of a debtor education course that the courts have pre-approved. Consider consulting with a lawyer first though our bankruptcy law offices in Dallas for an evaluation of your case.
The average cost of a debtor education class ranges between $50 and $100, depending on which vendor you select. You may opt to take the online course for bankruptcy at a website that has been approved by the U.S. Trustee’s office. After you submit your proof of claim form for bankruptcy, part of your debtor education will include a consultation that will cover the following:
- review of your personal finances;
- roadmap towards a personal budget;
- Information and resources to help you manage your credit wisely;
- Finance management advice; and
- Preventative measures to help you avoid the most common post-bankruptcy mistakes.
It’s the unfortunate case that many otherwise legitimate bankruptcy cases are dismissed solely on the grounds that the Chapter 7 bankruptcy petitioner failed to complete an approved debtor education course satisfactorily. Speak with an attorney at our law offices in Dallas who can help you navigate your Chapter 7 petition from start to finish.
