Topics reviewed include how bankruptcy can eliminate debts, the difference between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13, the effect on credit ratings and which forms are required for filing. Issues of creditor harassment, what a collection agent cannot say to you and how to fight back if you are harassed will also be addressed. This class will not provide direct legal advice nor will they directly assist in completing forms.
This class is most helpful when participants bring a set of bankruptcy forms with them to the clinic. A 'Complete Petition Packet' can be obtained by clicking this link: Chapter 7 Complete Petition Packet.
