Debtors who file bankruptcy cases ultimately want to fully complete their cases and receive an order that discharges their debts. This is the main purpose of filing a bankruptcy case. However, before a discharge order is issued, all persons who file bankruptcy cases must complete a consumer debt management course. Debtors who complete this course receive a certificate proving their compliance with this important, necessary requirement.

This course, similar to the pre-bankruptcy credit counseling course, may be taken online, in person, or over the telephone. The cost is typically between $50-100, but the fee may be waived if a debtor qualifies for the waiver. The course takes about two hours to complete and teaches debtors to manage money and properly use a budget and credit.

However, again, the most important thing to know about this requirement is that not until this course is taken, will the bankruptcy court issue a discharge order to the debtor. It is wise to take this class immediately after the case is filed so a debtor may complete this requirement far in advance of receiving his or her discharge order.
