If you already obtained pre-bankruptcy counseling and you filed case, you’ll need to get a bankruptcy education certificate in order for the case to be closed by the Court Clerk.   Debtor education courses are offered by approved providers. They cover managing your money, creating and maintaining a budget, and using credit appropriately. Education can be done by phone or online.

If you have questions about the financial education requirement in bankruptcy, contact us online or call Scott Lanin, Esq. at (212) 764-7250 Ext.201. We offer a free phone consult to review and evaluate your case or you can schedule an office consult.
