Consumer Bankruptcy Law Project provides debt relief services on a needs-based ability to pay basis.
Our cost guidelines are as follows:
The attorney’s fees for a Chapter 7 case filing are flat-rated, but can increase depending on the complexity of your circumstances and are determined on a case-by-case basis. In either a single or joint Chapter 7 case, we require $300 down towards the attorney’s fees in order to begin working on your case. If you are in need of payment options, we can offer assistance upon request.
In either a single or joint Chapter 13 case, we require $500 down towards the attorney’s fees in order to begin working on your case. Any remaining attorney’s fees owed will be paid through your Chapter 13 Plan payments.
* Bankruptcy law requires that an individual filing for bankruptcy undergo Credit Counseling before filing bankruptcy, and to complete a financial management education course before receiving a bankruptcy discharge. Both of these courses are provided online and can be completed 24-hours-a-day for your convenience. The organizations that provide credit counseling charge varied fees for the pre-filing credit counseling and the post-filing financial management courses, depending on the company.
