My Bankruptcy School

OUTLINE OF COURSES

My Bankruptcy School is the most comprehensive online training that currently exists for training Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcy petition preparation skills. My Bankruptcy School is used by new bankruptcy attorneys, paralegals as well as training law firm staff to maintain consistency in training procedures.

Since bankruptcy is federal law, My Bankruptcy School is not state specific. Typical bankruptcy software, which is a practical necessity to prepare petitions, typically provide you with any additional local forms that your specific court requires. My Bankruptcy School trains all the standard government forms and schedules (Voluntary Petition through Creditors Matrix) as well as the Chapter 13 Plan and the means test.

To enroll more than one person call Kelly 317-370-5032

All Chapter 7 and 13 courses comes with 1 free hour or one-on-one training per month; plus you can purchase additional training for only $99 per hour.
