How Much Does It Cost to File for Bankruptcy? Our fee is $499.00 for an individual filer as well as for a married couple filing together on the same petition and includes preparing the petition and supporting schedules for a routine Chapter 7 Bankruptcy filing and registering you through Springboard Non-Profit Consumer Credit Counseling for the two mandatory consumer credit counseling sessions. 
Our fee is due up front when you are ready to get started with the process and fill out our Contract for Services.  Our fee is the only fee that is paid to We the People.  The remaining fees are paid directly to the court and the consumer credit counseling service.

There will be a separate filing fee payable directly to the Bankruptcy Court, and the filing fee is due at the time of filing your documents with the court. You will also be responsible for the fees for the mandatory consumer credit counseling sessions. Please call our office to get more specific information on these additional fees.

Currently, the court filing fee for a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy is $335.  Depending upon which consumer credit counseling agency you choose to use, the two mandatory consumer credit counseling sessions will cost approximately $60.
