Nonprofit bankruptcy services showcased at Memphis Consumer Bankruptcy Workshop, May 20, 2011
ORLANDO, Fla., May 17, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- InCharge Education Foundation("InCharge"), one of the nation's leading nonprofit organizations devoted to personal financial literacy, will be showcasing its Pre-Filing Credit Counseling, Pre-Discharge Debtor Education courses and its services to consumer bankruptcy attorneys at the American Bankruptcy Institute's Memphis Consumer Bankruptcy Workshop in Memphis, Tennessee, May 20, 2011.
According to Epic Systems, Inc. in an analysis of U.S. Bankruptcy Court filings on March 1, 2011, "Despite a decline in personal bankruptcies in Tennessee and Alabama last year, the two states remained among the top states in per capita bankruptcy filings. Georgia moved up from third to second last year because of an increase in filings. Nationwide, personal bankruptcy filings grew 8 percent to 1.53 million in 2010 to include about one of every 200 people."
"There are still several states, like Nevada and Georgia, where bankruptcies are up by as much as 4% or more," said Beth Mason, InCharge's Director of Outreach Programs for Bankruptcy Services. "The Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005, or BAPCPA, requires debtors to complete both Pre-Filing Credit Counseling and Pre-Discharge Debtor Education courses, of which InCharge has provided over 750,000 since 2006."
Attorneys and anyone seeking a reliable and professional source for consumer bankruptcy courses are encouraged to visit the InCharge booth at this event.
