A credit report does not tell the entire story but it is the first step in getting your financial situation resolved.
You are not eligible to file a bankruptcy unless you receive an individual or group briefing from an approved nonprofit budget and counseling agency that is approved by the court [click here]. That briefing must outline your opportunities for available credit counseling and assist you in performing a related budget analysis. It must occur within 180 days prior to filing the bankruptcy. It can take place on the internet or by telephone or in person.
Additionally you must complete a financial management class after you file. Failure to complete this class on time will result in you discharge of debts being denied. This means you will still owe all your debts. Following is a link connecting you to the providers. Click Here
