Filing for Bankruptcy? We’re here to help
Why work with the Credit Counseling Center
The Credit Counseling Center has helped thousands of consumers, like you, complete their bankruptcy counseling requirement.
The new bankruptcy laws require consumers filing bankruptcy to complete financial counseling before filing, and a debtor education program after filing.
Whether you’re located in Pennsylvania or anywhere in the United States, you can utilize our services. We are approved by the Executive Office of the U.S. Trustees to provide both the required pre-filing counseling and pre-discharge education.
We are approved to issue certificates in compliance with the Bankruptcy Code.
Approval does not endorse or assure the quality of an Agency’s services. We will generate the certificates of completion necessary for your bankruptcy as you complete the programs.
Before you file: Pre-filing
Pre-filing bankruptcy counseling is completed PRIOR to filing.
The Credit Counseling Center is an approved provider of pre-filing bankruptcy counseling, required within 180 days before filing for Chapter 7 or 13 bankruptcy protection. This counseling can be received over the phone, Zoom, online, or in-person.
To begin the pre-filing bankruptcy process, click below, or call 215-348-8003.
After you file: Pre-discharge
Pre-discharge bankruptcy education is completed AFTER the attorney filed your case and gives you a bankruptcy case number.
The Credit Counseling Center is an approved provider of pre-discharge bankruptcy education, required before a Chapter 7 or 13 bankruptcy case is discharged. This course can be completed online.
Again, this is required before your case is discharged.
To begin the pre-discharge bankruptcy education online, click below, or call 215-348-8003 to register for the course.
