These are credit counseling agencies approved by the Justice Department for the court districts in your state.
You may notice most of them are not in your state. That's, because most are nationwide outfits that offer their services online or by phone.
The list of approved credit counselors for all states is maintained and updated by the Department of Justice at http://www.usdoj.gov/ust/eo/bapcpa/ccde/cc_approved.htm
Credit counseling is now required for all persons before they can file for bankruptcy. It costs about $50 or less and can be done in person, on the phone, or over the internet.
A credit counseling session generally lasts about 90 minutes. They'll review of your financial situation, give you information about your rights and options, and propose a repayment plan for resolving your debt problems, if possible.
Credit counseling organizations are now screened by the federal government and only approved organizations can be used in bankruptcy. (See below.) This regulation is a good thing. The field rife with rip-off artists and the regulation has been welcomed by legitimate credit counselors.
The FTC also publishes a useful pamphlet on how to select a credit counselor.
