The Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005 requires any individual who plans to file for bankruptcy to complete a pre-filing counseling session given by a credit counseling agency approved by the U.S. Department of Justice. Additionally, a bankrupt individual must take part in an approved, follow-up personal financial management course before his or her debts can be discharged.
Family Foundations is an approved agency to help you complete the required counseling and education as well as to provide you with the certificate you will need should you choose to file for bankruptcy protection. The U.S. Department of Justice has approved Family Foundations to issue certificates in compliance with the Bankruptcy Code. Please note that this approval by the U.S. Department of Justice does not constitute and endorsement or assure the quality of the agency’s services.
