Bankruptcy Course for Debtors

We are partnered with DebtorCC, an online platform for bankruptcy filers to complete the first and second course under the Bankruptcy Abuse and Consumer Protection Act of 2005 (BAPCPA) to streamline the education process for both you and your clients.

Use NextChapter and DebtorCC to fulfill the credit counseling requirement for your clients' bankruptcy case. With this integration, you and your clients will benefit from a smoother debtor education process free of faxing or back and forth emails. Facilitate the credit counseling course seamlessly by creating a DebtorCC account and linking it to NextChapter's bankruptcy software.

Make the entire process easier for your clients with online debtor education. Because of the user-friendly platform and intuitiveness of DebtorCC, your clients will be more likely to complete the course with quicker turnaround time. This will allow you to move through the bankruptcy case filing process faster.

As the attorney, you can invite your client to take their credit counseling course and view their progress without leaving NextChapter. Once they finish the course, everything will automatically populate into the bankruptcy software, taking away the manual work.
