First time callers often ask, “How much does filing bankruptcy cost?”
My answer usually surprises them because first I ask: What type of bankruptcy do you want to file? It’s important to know what you want to achieve. There are two kinds of bankruptcy to consider: Chapter 7 and Chapter 13. The prices are very different, and the goals these types of bankruptcy can achieve are different. I’m always happy to quote prices over the phone, but I do believe that people should come in for a free consultation before they make a decision. Everyone should speak with a qualified bankruptcy attorney who is willing to explain BOTH kinds of bankruptcy. It’s not enough to know what it costs. You need to know what it can do for you to help secure your financial future.
For Chapter 7 cases the price varies based on the complexity of the case. For Chapter 13 cases the Middle District of Georgia has a standard ‘no look’ fee that is the lowest in the state and is usually included in the monthly Chapter 13 Plan payments (so you don’t pay it upfront).
