Chapter 13 Plans



Sorry, There Are Some Fees
How Much Bankruptcy Costs

The Bankruptcy Court charges filing fees as follows:

For a Chapter 7 case, $335

For a Chapter 13 case, $310

The Court also has a shopping list of other miscellaneous fees.

Congress also thinks you need credit counseling.The law requires you to obtain pre-filing credit counseling, a briefing from an approved non-profit credit counseling agency, and a post-filing education course from an approved provider. Fees for the briefing and course vary, but $60 or less is a typical total. In cases involving very low income debtors, the agency will sometimes waive the fee altogether.
