Debtor Orientation

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 130 E. Wilson Bridge Rd, Suite 100, Worthington, Ohio from 6:00 to 7:30 PM. Those debtors assigned to Mr. Frank M. Pees 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.

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.
