BANKRUPTCY GUIDE

HOW MUCH DOES BANKRUPTCY COST?

A typical Chapter 7 case can run in the area of $950.00 to $1,200.00 plus the filing fee for a personal bankruptcy depending on the complexity of the case. If a business is involved, the fee may be higher.

Thatís the bad news. The good news is you do not need all of the monies up front. Typically we require a retainer fee and we will then place you on a convenient monthly payment plan based on your individual needs.

A Chapter 13 case currently costs $3,500.00 plus the filing fee. A Chapter 13 case involves more court appearances as they require a three to five yr. period of time for completion of the plan. Usually a $1000.00 retainer fee is required with the balance of fees and costs paid through the Chapter 13 plan.
