What Does It Cost to File Bankruptcy? IT’S AFFORDABLE, AND FEES ARE EASY TO UNDERSTAND AND MANAGE.
Your total cost to file Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy with my office depends on the complexity of your facts and whether you file Chapter 7 or Chapter 13. I will discuss your case with you and set my fee in your free consultation. The great news is that you will pay my fee AFTER your case is filed. Call me at 404 418-8879, or email me to set up your free initial consultation with me in my Decatur office. I will work around your schedule, and offer next day appointments. You will leave my office understanding the fee structure.
There are two other components to the total cost: the court filing fees, the pre-filing counseling fee/credit report fee.
2. Court fees
Chapter 7 debtors pay the court $306 in fees. For most Chapter 7 clients, this is total of the ‘up front’ cost. Attorney fees and other costs can be paid after filing.
Chapter 13 debtors pay the court $281 in fees. For most Chapter 13 clients, a portion of the court filing fee is paid ‘up front,’ and the balance is paid after filing.
3. Pre-filing Counseling / Credit REPORTS
The bankruptcy court mandates that debtors undergo pre-filing counseling. My vendor charges $15 for this course. Clients pay $35 towards the fee I pay to obtain credit reports at filing. These fees can be paid after your case is filed.
Remember that you will likely be able to pay ALL of the attorney fee after you file. Call me at 404 418-8879, or email me to set up your free initial consultation with me in my Decatur office.
