How Much Will Bankruptcy Cost?
An individual can get started in a Chapter 13 plan for as little as $410 ($440 for a couple). These fees are the fees that the court charges to file the case, and it is all we charge up front in most cases. The rest of the attorney fees are paid off throughout the course of your plan, generally over 3-5 years. All fees due to the attorney must be approved by the bankruptcy court.
Chapter 7 filing fees start at $435 for an individual, which includes the court filing fee, a credit report, and 2 credit counseling courses which are required by the court. All attorney fees are generally paid up front and can vary due to the complexity of the individual case.
