Approved Wisconsin Credit Counseling Agencies
There are two classes you must take as part of your bankruptcy. The first class is credit counseling, and it must be taken prior to filing bankruptcy. The second is financial management, and it can only be taken after your bankruptcy petition has been filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court.
The goal of these classes is to give you the tools you will need to avoid financial difficulties after your bankruptcy is complete. The classes are not designed to be difficult. The goal is to ensure you understand what has been presented.
Many people find it easiest to take an online course. Nearly every credit counseling service offers the class online. Some people may be uncomfortable using the internet. Some of these agencies will also present the class over the phone.
