Check the courts website for your forms and also the approved course providers. Sound like Northern Federal district of California.

I agree with Mr. Whitaker. Sacramento is Eastern District. The website he provided has list of forms that need be filed.
You need to complete credit counseling before you file, and then another counseling after you file.
