Learn More If you're planning to file for bankruptcy, the law requires that you complete a pre-bankruptcy counseling session with an approved credit counseling agency.
American Consumer Credit Counseling is an approved bankruptcy credit counseling agency, authorized by the US Trustee Program of the Department of Justice.
Examples of unsecured debt include: credit cards, department store cards, collection agencies, credit lines, and unsecured personal loans.
In these circumstances, debt consolidation may be helpful. There are two main debt consolidation options: debt consolidation by taking out a loan, and debt consolidation programs such as those offered by American Consumer Credit Counseling (ACCC) that do not require you to borrow.
One common approach to debt consolidation involves taking out a loan.
In addition to obtaining a bankruptcy certificate before your bankruptcy is discharged, you must also, complete a debtor education course, also known as post-bankruptcy debtor education. We provide online bankruptcy counseling, and can also give bankruptcy counseling over the phone.
