Practice Tip: Debt Relief Agency Notices

12 Apr Practice Tip: Debt Relief Agency Notices

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.
