How much does it cost to file bankruptcy?

There are two components to figuring the cost for filing bankruptcy. The first, and easiest cost to calculate is the court’s filing fee, which is the amount the court charges to accept a bankruptcy filing.

As of June 1, 2014, the court charges and collects $310.00 for a Chapter 13 filing and $335.00 for a Chapter 7 filing. The second component are the attorney fees, and that amount is going to depend on the complexity of your case.

For simple Chapter 7 cases, our fees start at $665.00, plus costs, and can move upward for more complex cases (dealing with parcels of real estate, businesses, tax issues, judgments, etc.)

Chapter 13 fees are set by the court, but the majority of fees are paid through a bankruptcy reorganization. The upfront fees to file a Chapter 13 may be as low as $500.00.

Our firm is committed to providing the best possible service along with low fees and will consider any specific circumstances you may have in determining price.
