The Orientation Program was established in Columbus, Ohio in 2003 by Mr. Frank Pees. Its purpose is to educate debtors about the Chapter 13 process and the protections afforded them under the Bankruptcy Code.
The Orientation Program is held every Monday night at 550 Polaris Parkway; Suite 500, Westerville, OH 43082-7045 from 6:00 to 7:30 PM. Those debtors assigned to Mr. Edward A. Bailey can attend Orientation on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month. Those debtors assigned to Ms. Faye D. English can attend Orientation on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month.
For those who cannot attend the evening program, a morning orientation program is offered on the first Monday morning of each month at 10:00 AM. If the office is closed on Monday, the morning orientation will be held the following Monday morning at 10:00 AM.
There is no need for the debtor(s) to register for the program, but it is important for them to sign-in upon arrival.
For those cases filed in Zanesville the Orientation Program is offered as part of the Financial Management course.
