What Does It Cost to File for Bankruptcy?

It now costs $200 filing fee to file for bankruptcy under Chapter 7 and $194 to file for bankruptcy under Chapter 13, whether for one person or a married couple. Attorney fees are set on an individual basis and are in addition to the filing fee. Installments are available on attorney fees for Chapter 7 cases, and down payment on Chapter 13 cases are generally based upon ability to pay and whether the case involves a business or not. Upon the initial consultation with Mr. Magness, a retainer will be set to begin the case.
