Our Bankruptcy Fees
Our primary focus at the Law Offices of Evan M. Rosen is to provide exceptional legal representation and personal service. We know that if we focus on service, everything else will follow from there. We will be glad to make time to talk with you, either on the phone or in person, to discuss your case, your financial situation, what concerns you have, and what you hope to achieve. In many situations, we can offer some initial opinions about what the best option might be for you. During our first conversation, we typically also discuss what we believe would be a reasonable fee for the anticipated legal work required.
We know that the reason you are here on our website, considering bankruptcy, is because you are facing financial challenges. We understand your concerns about having to spend money to hire a lawyer and want to do all that we can to work with you regarding our fees. Since every case is different—and in order to be fair to all of our clients—we are unable to post the same flat-rate fee online for everyone. Some bankruptcy matters do not take as much work as others. But, to give you a general idea of what it usually costs, our fees in a routine chapter 7 case are $1,500. That does not include what the court charges for the initial filing fee. We are also more than happy to arrange affordable payment plans. Chapter 13 cases demand a great deal more work than chapter 7 cases, so our fees are usually around $4,500. This too does not include the court’s initial filing fees or some occasional additional costs. However, in a Chapter 13 case, you only pay $1,500 along with the court’s filing fee upfront and again, we will gladly work with you to spread out the payments if that’s what you need. After the initial fee, the remainder of the fee can be paid over the next several months through the chapter 13 plan.
Filing fees paid to the court in chapter 7 cases are presently $338, and they are $313 in Chapter 13 cases. We can request the court to waive the initial filing fee in a chapter 7 if your income is less than 150 percent of the official poverty guidelines. The filing fee cannot be waived in a chapter 13 case, but it can be paid in installments.
