How much will it cost me to file bankruptcy?

Clients understandably want to know how much their attorney will charge before committing to a course of action. Unfortunately, there are no easy answers. Each case is different and the fees reflect the complexity of an individual situation. Lawyers all have different fee structures, with some charging on an hourly basis and some charging a flat fee.

Fees can range from $750 for a Chapter 128 filing to $10,000+ for a complex Chapter 12 filing. Without knowing your individual circumstances and what options will best serve you, an attorney cannot tell you how much his/her services will cost.

I offer free initial consultations so clients can discuss their financial problems and get an idea of their options before committing to anything. Once I know the details of your financial life, I can explain your options and tell you how much I will charge to help you with any of them. You can then take some time to consider the options and make your decision from home.

    • I won’t give you legal advice without meeting with you, but *generally* people who are on government assistance are collection-proof. But I would advise you to take the advice of an attorney who met with you, rather than some stranger on the internet.

  2. I have a court date on Feb 20, 2017. My employer wants to take me to court for overpayment of wages. When they deposit the money in my account I didn’t know anything about it because I have another person using that account. The only thing I used to do was have automatic drafts come out for that amount. When I was called about 2 weeks later she told me that extra money was put in my account as a mistake. What should I do and what will happen in court

    • It depends on where you live. I would contact a local attorney asap to learn if you have a defense to this lawsuit. NACBA’s attorney finder is a great place to start. Good luck!
