About Cricket Debt Counseling

Cricket Debt Counseling was started by former Bankruptcy attorneys to provide unbiased and accurate credit counseling information to individuals seeking bankruptcy protection.

Cricket Debt Counseling is a non-profit, tax exempt 501(c)(3) organization approved by the United States Trustees as a Nonprofit Budget and Credit Counseling Agency in every Judicial District in its jurisdiction, Alabama, and North Carolina. Cricket Debt offers the credit counseling required by §109(h)(1) of the Bankruptcy Code as a prerequisite to filing for individual debtor bankruptcy protection.

Cricket Debt does not offer Debt Management Plans, and Cricket Debt is not affiliated with any bank, credit card company, collection agency, or credit counseling agency. Cricket Debt has no vested financial interest in the outcome of counseling, and will always present an unbiased viewpoint concerning the relative benefits and disadvantages associated with debt management plans versus personal bankruptcies. No agenda will ever color Cricket Debt's advice.

Cricket Debt has one clear goal, to help you restart and flourish.

Clients who find themselves in financial distress come to us for help. If you are thinking of bankruptcy, our Budget and Credit Counseling is the first step to turning things around.
To restart.

You will be treated with kindness and dignity. We honor all those with whom we have contact with empathy and understanding. It sets the stage for you to thrive once again.
To flourish.

These are our values, our purpose, our singular goal.
