How much does it cost to file for bankruptcy?

The bankruptcy court filing fees are as follows: $335 (Chapter 7), $310 (Chapter 13) and $1,717 (Chapter 11).

In addition, prior to filing, individuals need to complete a credit counseling course and prior to receiving a discharge in Chapter 7 or 13 individuals need to complete a personal financial management course. The cost for those two courses is approximately $10 – 25.

In addition, you should consider hiring an experienced bankruptcy attorney. In today’s complicated bankruptcy process, hiring a competent bankruptcy attorney will increase your chances of protecting your assets, maximizing bankruptcy benefits and completing the process successfully (especially in more complicated Chapter 13 and Chapter 11 bankruptcies).  An experienced bankruptcy attorney will help you to protect your assets and make sure all of your debts (that can be discharged) are discharged.  The attorney’s fees are different for Chapter 7, 11 and 13.  Call Juras Law Firm at 480-425-2009 or contact us today via email for a CONFIDENTIAL CONSULTATION!
