Under provisions of the new bankruptcy law, the person must meet with an approved credit counselor in thier judicial district for a 90-minute session in the six months prior to applying for bankruptcy.

Here is a list of approved credit counseling agencies

I was thinking that perhaps this will mean that some of these agencies will have a lot of work, and perhaps I could get a part time job with one of those firms to bring in some extra money. I was surprised to see most of the firms listed for the state of MA are not actually located in Massachusetts. Guess they are going to do this counseling over the internet or the phone.

Here is a job listing for a credit counselor at The Institute for Financial Literacy

Since even in a part time job, I only want to associate with an ethical, competent firm, I was wondering if any one had suggestions about what firms might be good.
