Debt issues are one of the most prevalent questions that hotline advocates are receiving today. We hear things like "I need to file bankruptcy" or "I need a bankruptcy attorney to help me." As a hotline advocate, you need to understand the legal concepts and practical considerations before you try to help a client in this situation. This webinar is designed to help.
After completing this 90 minute webinar, you will understand
-the different types of personal bankruptcy,
-the basics of the general exemptions,
-the bankruptcy process,
-the alternatives to bankruptcy,
-the "get out of debt" scams,
-how to make sure you have all of the information necessary to advise on this issue,
-the practical advice and instructions that hotline advocates can give clients regarding bankruptcy, and
-when to refer the client for more extensive service.
