Practice Tip: Debt Relief Agency Notices

by Andy Miofsky, Esq.

April 12, 2009

The majority of courts that have considered the issue have found attorneys are debt relief agencies under the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act.  Being a debt relief agency requires compliance by bankruptcy attorneys with Sections 342 and 527.  There are four debt relief agency notices a bankruptcy attorney must give a new client.  You can link and print a copy of each notice here:  BAPCPA DRA Notices.  These notices must be given within 3 days of offering to provide bankruptcy services.  The attorney must retain a copy of the notices for 2 years thereafter.  It is easy to save your notices as a .pdf file on your computer.
