Oklahoma Credit Counseling Help
One of the new requirements for filing for bankruptcy protection that was enacted in 2005 involves the prerequisite that the debtor obtains and completes credit counseling prior to filing for protection from the Bankruptcy Court. The law is straightforward with this requirement and there is little chance to get around it.
However, the role of an Oklahoma City bankruptcy lawyer can be invaluable in this context, as while it’s possible that a debtor’s creditors will continue with their collection efforts prior to the filing of a petition, the bankruptcy attorney can provide instant help by communicating with these creditors to inform them that the debtor is undergoing credit counseling. This could lead to a minimization of these collection efforts and steer them towards the attorney’s office instead of your mailbox or your phone.
