Our Bankruptcy Costs and Fees
How Much Does It Cost to File a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?
Typically, Blue Bee Bankruptcy Law charges an attorney fee of $1,600 to represent a debtor in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy from beginning to end.
This fee can vary, either upward or downward, depending on your financial circumstances.
Our Fast File option allows you to pay only costs of $400 ($430 for joint) (includes the filing fee, credit report, and credit counseling) before filing your case.
Upon filing, you will execute an agreement to pay $200 per month for 8 consecutive months by automatic deduction from your designated bank account.
You can pay these payments following your normal employment pay cycle (i.e. weekly, biweekly, twice monthly).
If you can’t afford $200 per month, we can work with you to reduce the monthly payment.
Do You Offer Discounts?
We also have a Discounted Option, where you can save $400 if you pay the entire attorney fees of $1,200 plus $400 ($430 for joint) in costs before filing.
If you pay up-front, we save the expense of monitoring monthly payments, and we pass the savings on to you.
Since we know that bankruptcy is just part of the solution, we also implement a proven strategy for rebuilding your credit after bankruptcy.
This program, which generally cost $1,000, is provided to our clients for no additional fee.
Fees and costs subject to change without notice. Please contact us for details at (801)-285-0980.
Can I Pay My Chapter 7 Attorney Fee in Installments?
Blue Bee Bankruptcy allows its clients to file bankruptcy even before they pay the attorney’s fee.
Do I Have to Qualify for the Installment Option?
Yes, you do, but it’s easy. You have to provide proof of employment or receipt of other regular monthly income, and you must have a bank account.
You must also authorize us to withdraw the monthly installment from that account.
Do I Have to Select the Installment Option?
No, you can pay our entire attorney fee before filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
If you choose to pay the full fee before filing, we will give you a $400 discount.
Because it costs us less money to monitor a bankruptcy case without monthly payments, and we pass that savings along to you.
Do You Offer an Installment Option for Chapter 13 Bankruptcy?
Yes, we do. The Bankruptcy Code allows a debtor to pay attorney fees after the Chapter 13 bankruptcy is filed.
So, we have flexible options for the payment of Chapter 13 attorney fees.
What Are the Other Costs Paid Before Filing a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?
You must provide your last three (3) years of tax returns to the Chapter 7 Trustee overseeing your case.
If you do not want to track down your complete tax returns for the last three tax years, we can do it for you at no additional charge!
You must pay only the $13 charged by the IRS to order a 3-year tax transcript directly from them. The tax transcript is a suitable substitute for your actual returns.
In summary, you can get your Chapter 7 bankruptcy filed for as little as $400 in costs, with no up-front attorney fees!
