ORLANDO, Fla., May 10, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- InCharge® Debt Solutions ("InCharge"), a nonprofit credit counseling agency, with its affiliate InCharge Education Foundation, has helped clients complete over 800,000 bankruptcy courses since the company initiated the educational offerings in 2006.

This event will feature discussions of ethics in bankruptcy practice, the new federal rules, real property issues, post-confirmation strategies, and numerous discussions of best practices.

"Michigan has jumped from the number nine position at the end of 2011, to the state with the sixth most bankruptcy filings during the first quarter of 2012," said Beth Mason, InCharge's Director of Outreach Programs for Bankruptcy Services. "Many Midwest states, including Michigan, Indiana, Illinois and Ohio have been hard-hit financially, and the location of this ICLE event is timely because it gives those of us who can help a chance to reach out."
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 and InCharge offers both courses online at www.PersonalFinanceEducation.com.
