Thank you for your inquiry about our Pre-Filing Counseling Education Course.   As you are no doubt aware, effective October 17, 2005 there were sweeping bankruptcy law changes.   Recent changes include a mandatory requirement to receive a 90 minute briefing from an approved nonprofit budget and counseling agency BEFORE filing a Chapter 7 Liquidation Plan or a Chapter 13 Repayment Plan.

We can offer this course in our counseling office at 849 SE Mosher in Roseburg.   In order for your counselor to have a clear understanding of your financial situation, we will need you to complete the following:

Once you have returned the paperwork to our office, we will schedule a time for your class once we are assured all documents have been completed.   Our office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00AM to 5:00PM.   If filing joint bankruptcy, both parties must attend a class session to receive a certificate.   We will require picture identification for verification.

We will educate you in several areas as required by the Executive Offices of the US Trustees; the following topics will be discussed to help you understand the new bankruptcy laws and procedures:

*REQUIREMENTS FOR THE CERTIFICATE
*ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF YOUR FINANCIAL PROBLEMS
*ROLE OF PRE-FILING COUNSELING
*OVERVIEW, CONSEQUENCES & ALTERNATIVES TO BANKRUPTCY
