Pre-Discharge Financial Education Workshop

Pre-discharge Education Workshop

Once your bankruptcy has been filed, but before it is discharged, the Bankruptcy Code requires that you complete additional training. Our Pre-discharge Education Workshop provides you with the information and skills you'll need to take charge of your finances. This workshop can be completed online or it is offered in our office once per month on a Saturday. After completing the workshop, you will receive a certificate to qualify for final discharge of your bankruptcy petition. The pre-discharge educational workshop will teach you about:

  • The benefits and risks of declaring bankruptcy
  • Developing sound financial habits and setting goals for your financial future
  • Rebuilding your credit: understanding and using credit wisely

A grade of at least 70% must be achieved on the exam following the course. If your grade is below 70%, an additional 15-minute counseling session will be required to review topics missed on the exam. There is not an additional fee for this session.

Bankruptcy Counseling Fees

To help defray the cost of this valuable service, we charge a $50.00 fee per session. Under certain circumstances, we can waive the fee. Waiving the fee will be assessed based on applicable regulations, written verification of your family's monthly gross income, and Federal Poverty Level Guidelines.
