Understanding bankruptcy

What does it cost to file bankruptcy?

Posted by -

The cost to file bankruptcy depends on a lot of factors. However, here are some of the typical fees you can expect:

Chapter 7

  • $335 court fee, typically due in full on the day of filing.
  • $50-$100 for mandatory credit counseling and financial management courses.
  • $1000-$2500 attorney fees, depending on the complexity of your case, your location, and which attorney you choose.

Chapter 13

  • $310 court fee, which you may be able to split into payments.
  • $50-$100 for mandatory credit counseling and financial management courses.
  • $3500-$4000+ attorney fees, which are typically higher than Chapter 7 fees due to the amount of work required. Some attorneys may accept payment plans.
