Bankruptcy Filing Fees, Attorney Fees, Debtor Credit Counseling Fees For a Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 case

  • The Bankruptcy filing fee for a chapter 7 bankruptcy case is currently $338.00

  • The  Bankruptcy filing fee for a chapter 13 bankruptcy case is currently $313.00

  • Debtor pre-bankruptcy filing credit counseling and pre discharge credit counseling fees can range from $24.00 per individual or married couple to as high as $50.00 per course and the counseling is mandatory.  Our clients will pay currently approximately $24.00 for the pre-bankruptcy credit counseling and currently approximately $20.00 for pre-discharge credit counseling per individual and couple, with a Court approved agency that we have selected.  We have no control over the amount that a credit counseling agency will charge and the agencies vary in pricing.

  • Chapter 7 attorney fees- Our attorney fees are typically a flat fee rate as opposed to a per hour rate and priced to be very affordable. We do take payments on the stated flat fee rate, but the stated flat fee rate must paid in full before the Attorney will file a chapter 7 bankruptcy petition with the Court.

  • Chapter 13 attorney fees- The client pays a portion of the attorney fees plus court filing fee upfront and the balance of attorney fees will be paid through the proposed monthly chapter 13 plan payments. We do take payments on the requested portion of the attorney fees and Court filing fee, but that portion of the upfront stated fees must paid in full before the Attorney will file a chapter 13 bankruptcy petition with the Court.  Once the case is confirmed, any work we do thereafter on the case we charge a billable hourly rate and seek compensation through the bankruptcy plan.
