The free bankruptcy class, and the manual you will receive at the class, will help you decide if bankruptcy is right for you. The class will teach you the realities and myths of bankruptcy, the differences between Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies, how to represent yourself in court, and alternatives to bankruptcy.

The bankruptcy class is the first step for you to apply for free legal representation to file your Chapter 7 case. At the class, you also will be given information regarding what documents you need to bring to an intake at Legal Aid Center, including an intake form. If you need special accommodations to attend the class, please call 702-386-1070.

FYI! The free bankruptcy class offered by Legal Aid Center is not the credit counseling session that is required before you file for bankruptcy. For information on approved credit counseling agencies, click to visit our Bankruptcy Links page.

The U.S. Courts have created a series of Bankruptcy Basics videos, which provide a good overview of the bankruptcy process. Legal Aid Center has prepared videos that supplement the courts' videos with additional and Nevada-specific information.* To watch the videos, click to visit our Bankruptcy Videos page.

*Legal Aid Center's videos were made possible thanks to a grant from the American College of Bankruptcy and the American College of Bankruptcy Foundation.
