Credit Counseling for Bankruptcy: More Important Information 

  • In general, failing to complete the credit counseling requirement before filing for bankruptcy can result in the petition being dismissed. When this happens, the petitioner will have to wait at least 180 days before (s)he can file for bankruptcy again (with proof of completing the credit counseling requirement).
  • In rare cases when people may be experiencing certain emergencies (like an impending wage garnishment or lawsuit from a creditor), it may be possible for the court to grant an exception to the credit counseling requirement (either allowing someone to complete it following the submission of their bankruptcy petition or waiving the requirement altogether).
  • Although a credit counseling course typically costs about $50, there may be fee waivers available in some cases.
  • Many credit counseling providers offer programs in Spanish.
