How much does it cost to file Chapter 13 or Chapter 7 in Georgia?
Chapter 7 Bankruptcy
To file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, I charge $1,200.00. (This includes everything: attorney fees, court filing fees, and both classes. Other firms may try to lure you in by quoting only their attorney fees). They leave out the $306 court filing fee and the cost for the class. I would rather tell you the total amount upfront.
Chapter 13 Bankruptcy
In emergency situations like a garnishment, we can file your Chapter 13 case for $100.00 ($75.00 to file the case and $25.00 for the credit counseling class. You must pay the remaining $206.00 within 60 days of your filing date).
As a general rule, I charge $310.00 to file Chapter 13 ($281 is your filing fee and $25 is for your class. $4 is because I don’t want to make change). If you file your case for $100.00 and agree to pay the rest of the filing fee in installments to the court, your case will be automatically dismissed if you miss a single installment. It is much safer for you to pay the entire filing fee upfront.
I file cases only in the Northern District of Georgia in the Rome and Atlanta Divisions.
You may see some other attorneys advertise that they will file your case for $75. The truth is that your filing fee for the bankruptcy court is $281.00 no matter who you file with.
Furthermore, you have to take a consumer credit counseling course BEFORE YOU FILE YOUR CASE and while there might be cheaper classes out there, $25.00 is the cheapest class I have found. When you hire me, I am going to be completely honest and upfront with you. In a Chapter 13, your attorneys fees are paid through your monthly chapter 13 plan payment. Attorneys fees in Chapter 13 vary from case to case.
