How Much Does Bankruptcy Cost?
What Does Bankruptcy Cost? It Depends In What You File.
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. U.S. bankruptcy
courts have filing fees for those who decide to initiate bankruptcy proceedings.
As of 2021, these are the fees:
- Administrative Fee: $78
- Trustee Fee: $15
- Credit Counseling Session: about $50 -- waivers or reduced rates are available
to those who qualify
The fees are usually due at the time you file the bankruptcy petition,
however, you may request to pay them in installments or even have them
waived. The only way to qualify for the waiver is to not be able to afford
the filing fees at all. To qualify for installments, your income must
be less than 150% of the poverty line.
