Chapter 13 Attorney Fees
Flexible payment plans available.
The initial fee for a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy case is $1,800. The balance of your Chapter 13 Bankruptcy fees can often be paid out of your payment to the Trustee. In most cases, this is another $1,700 for a total fee of $3,500.
The reason it is so much higher than Chapter 7 fees is because of the larger amount of work required of the attorneys in a Chapter 13 and additionally because we could be involved in your case for 5 years off and on.
Unlike Chapter 7 attorney fees, these do not need to be paid all up front and by law are provided for out of the plan over time during your case and after filing. (The minute we are paid any funds as your attorney, the creditors by law must immediately cease telephoning the debtor.)
