How Much Does Bankruptcy Cost?
Bankruptcy Lawyer in California, Nevada, Arizona and New York
The cost of filing for bankruptcy depends on several factors. These include the type of bankruptcy you are filing for, as well as the amount of debt you possess. In reality, no two bankruptcies are alike. U.S. bankruptcy courts have filing fees for those who decide to initiate bankruptcy proceedings, with Chapter 7 cases costing $335, and
Chapter 13 cases costing $274. In a
Chapter 7 case, you will have most or all of your debt cancelled by a bankruptcy court, and may see the liquidation of some of your assets in order to aid in the repaying of creditors. The benefits of eradicating the bulk of your debt in a relatively timely fashion far outweigh any expense that might be involved in the initial filing. In a Chapter 13, you will engage in a payment plan with your creditors, so in addition to the filing fees, there will of course be the cost of paying what you owe to your creditors. However, this takes place over a period of months or years, and many people end up paying less than the full amount of their debt.
