Since the amendments to the Bankruptcy Code enacted by the U.S. Congress in 2005, the Trustee no longer provides a free seminar for persons filing new cases. It is now however a legal requirement that two counseling sessions must be completed in order for you to file a case, and obtain a Chapter 13 discharge.

One of the requirements is that you must obtain counseling before you are eligible to file a case.  The other is a requirement that you obtain additional counseling before you can obtain a discharge. 

You should be familiar with these requirements, and should receive instruction concerning these requirements from your attorney. 

You may also obtain information concerning the counseling requirements from the following web site:
