One of the first question I get when clients call my office is what does it cost to file bankruptcy? Your cost to file Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy will always depend on the complexity of your case. Are you currently being sued, garnished or under foreclosure? These facts will imply time will be of the essence, and we need to act quickly. Or fact similar to these may help determine if whether you should file Chapter 7 or Chapter 13. Call my office today at 404-913-1529 to set up your free initial consultation with me at my Newnan office. I will work around your schedule, and offer next day appointments. You will leave my office with a clear understanding the fee structure and your options. I understand you cannot afford to take time off work right now, and I will meet clients late and on the weekends by appointment.
There are three regular components to the total cost: the court filing fees, the pre-filing counseling fee, and my fee to prepare your chapter 7 or 13 and represent you.
Chapter 7 debtors pay the court $335 in fees.
Chapter 13 debtors pay the court $310 in fees.
The bankruptcy court requires that each debtor undergo pre-filing counseling. My vendor charges $15 for this course.
If you file a chapter 13 it is most likely that you will be able to pay all of the attorney fee after you file. If you file a chapter 7 my goal is to keep my fee affordable. My fee will vary with each case depending on the facts surrounding the matter. Contact our office today to set up your free initial consultation in my Newnan, Georgia office.
