If you qualify to file a chapter 7 bankruptcy, the bankruptcy court's filing fee is now $335.00. There are also other costs that you must pay such as the fee for the credit counseling class, the financial management class, plus a credit report. Generally, these extra fees are between $110.00 and $130.00, depending on whether you are filing individually or with your spouse. Attorney's fees in a typical chapter 7 are between $1,500.00 -$2,000.00. To find out how much your attorney's fees will be, come in for an appointment so we can go over your particular situation. We will go over your debts, the property you own, your monthly income and expenses, and other factors that may be present in your case.
We will not suggest that you file bankruptcy unless you really need to. Sometime debts are so old that they are uncollectible, or you may have debts that are not dischargeable in bankruptcy. We will be happy to meet with you to go over your particular situation. The consultation is free. Call us at 214-974-3390 to set up your free consultation.
